The Pearl Roadshow 18” Drum Kit is an entry-level starter pack designed for beginners. It's a great value-for-money bundle that provides all you need to start your drumming journey in one convenient package. It contains Pearl’s brilliant 5-piece Roadshow kit and a set of Pearl Roadshow hardware containing cymbal stands, snare and hi-hat stand, a stool and a bass drum pedal. You also get a set of hi-hat cymbals and a nifty crash/ride cymbal and on top of all that, you even get a handy Pearl stick bag along with a set of sticks. That's a lot of kit for an amazingly low price.
Roadshow shells are crafted from 9-plies of bonded Poplar that have been moulded and shaped in such a way as to create a single air resonance chamber which enhances sound projection. These shells also have hand-cut 45° bearing edges for perfect drum head fitment. This ups the tension consistency of the drum, making it much easier to tune - a very useful for novice players.
This Roadshow has an 18 x 12” bass drum with an extensive tuning range that enables you to explore the vast tonal depths of its deep, thumping bass frequencies. It also features locking, slip-free spurred feet and a secure tom mounting bracket. It’s partnered to a 13 x 5” snare - a dynamic, highly-sensitive drum able to voice a broad range of expression, from vicious attack to the gentlest of ghost-notes.
Pearl has made the Roadshow kit an even bigger bargain by including a 2-piece cymbal set. A 16” brass crash/ride and a set of 14” brass/hybrid hats are enough to get you up and running and are sure to keep you in good stead until you feel ready to expand or upgrade your set. To ensure that your cymbals, hi-hat, and snare drum are always stable and in your preferred position, the Pearl Roadshow Hardware pack contains sturdy stands with double-braced tripod legs and interlocking tilter adjustments. There is even a great bass drum pedal and a double-braced throne.
As the icing on the cake, you’ll also receive two sets of sticks in a very useful professional stick-bag, ready to rock and keen to christen your kit as soon as you’ve set up. The Roadshow is a great entry into the world of drums and will definitely inspire any beginner to persevere with their learning - as they grow in skill, this kit will only sound better and better.
