OVERVIEW

Unlock the rhythm in you with essential gear.

Second-rate gear only makes your drumming journey harder. The Pearl Roadshow is not a toy or a hand-me-down. It's a complete drum set package with everything you need to start your rhythmic journey to the big time. Here are some things to look for when buying your first drum kit; see for yourself how Roadshow stacks up:

The cymbals, hi-hat, and snare stands should start with a strong and well-balanced tripod base. Double-braced legs and interlocking tilter adjustments are also vital for keeping all parts of the kit in place under the pressure of performance. Roadshow's included hardware package is second-to-none in its class. All stands are dual-reinforced, height and angle adjustable, and feature double-braced legs to withstand the pounding onslaught of the heavy-hitting drummer.

The snare drum is the voice of the drum set and captures everything from the loudest accents to the softest "ghost" notes. With a matching shell and finish, the Roadshow snare is full of attack and power, yet sensitive enough for drumming at any volume.

The bass drum is the tonal heartbeat of the drum set and should not only set the low-end pulse for the groove, but be a foundation for the rest of the complete drum set-up. The Roadshow kick drum features an extended tension/tuning range for low, chest-thumping bass frequencies, and includes locking, slip-free feet (or ˜spurs'), and secure mounting for toms and accessories.

Roadshow's included cymbal set features a 16" brass crash/ ride and a set of 14" brass/hybrid hats. Perfect for accents and timekeeping until an upgraded multi-cymbal set-up is acquired.

I've been singing in Classic Rock and Oldie bands for 40 years. I bought these as a first set for my grandson who has been taking lessons and practicing on an electronic set. I must admit that, for the price, I didn't have very high expectations and just wanted a set that was complete and usable. Boy was I surprised! The quality of the set is much better than I expected. The shells are well made and finished very well, the hardware is nicely chromed and very sturdy. It comes well packaged in just two large boxes (don't know how they did that, but they did), and the most complicated parts of the assembly are already done. You just have to mount some heads and set it all up, which will take a non-drummer (like me) about an hour and a half. A drummer could prob set it up in 20 minutes. There were no defects in any of the pieces. My only criticism is that the set-up videos (there are 5 of them) did not work well (pause, stop, volume etc.) on the Pearl roadshow website, so it was a real pain to keep going thru the video to get instructions you missed the first time thru, instead of just pausing and re-running. I figured out eventually that they were embedded from YouTube, and once I went there to watch them they worked correctly and set-up was quicker and more efficient. Check that website, Pearl, and fix that please. A drummer friend thought the set was pro enough and such a good value that he might purchase one as a backup for gigs.

          Comments about Pearl Roadshow 5-Piece New Fusion Drum Set:

          One review cannot tell you how amazing this drum set is. The sound is superb, especially the snare drum. Contrary to the description, it DOES come with a throne. The hardware is of amazing quality; the bass pedal is amazing. It comes with a nice stick bag with two pair of sticks. The cymbals are fine until you can get used nice cymbals to replace them.

          Comments about Roadshow 5-Piece New Fusion Drum Set:

          I use this as my studio set, personally I love it, cymbals and all. The red looks great and the hardware is solid. Amazing pedal and a very nice throne included. Would definitely recommend this as an entry or even mid level kit for anyone. Included batter heads are ok, not great, and reso heads are very thin and tinny. Also the "Accutune" bass drum rims are made of some kind of plastic and I don't know how I feel about that however, they seem to work fine. Again, couldn't be more thrilled overall, replacement heads and this is a serious set.

                I bought this set for my 8 yr son that just started to learn to play. It is a great set for him and he really enjoys playing on it. The kit was easy to set up, even for first timers like us. After we set it up and adjusted to my son, it works great. The sounds are awesome. Only drawback is the cymbals that come with the kit. They are not of high end quality but the description states this. They are only meant to last until an upgraded set can be purchased.

                    My son has been wanting a drum kit for some time now. He found some really cheap set on line but I wanted to pay a little extra for quality to maximize his learning potential. Pearl is one of the premier brands. The drums are of great quality. Mounting hardware, stands, and pedals are top notch as well. The price was better than I'd find used on used equipment. The local Guitar Center wanted more for the same kit and that didn't seem to include the cymbal and hi hat.

                        Very nice sounding drums for poplar shells. I'm just a novice drummer that will probably never be advanced. But in my opinion these are very well made drums for the money. I mean,they are Pearl. They will fulfill my needs. I will upgrade the heads to Remo or Evans and add another cymbal and cowbell.

                          My child has been taking lessons and he wanted a drumset of his own. He hopes to one day play at a local church. He loves it!
