Following in the footsteps of Pearl’s Roadshow series for beginning drummers, this is not merely a toy made to look like a drum set. The Roadshow Jr. is an all-in-one five piece kit featuring hardware, cymbals, and sturdy White Poplar shell construction for an exceptional, tuneable, powerful playing experience. The package includes a 16”x10” bass drum, a 13”x8” floor tom, 10”x5.5 and 8”x5” toms, a 12”x4” snare drum, bass drum pedal, snare, cymbal, and hi-hat stands, and a 13” crash and 10” hi-hat metal cymbal set. Second-rate gear only makes the drumming journey harder.
Here are some things to look for when buying your first drum kit; see for yourself how Roadshow Jr. stacks up.
Cymbal, hi-hat, and snare drum stands should start with a strong and well-balanced tripod base. ROADSHOW JR’s included hardware package is scaled to the reachable -and portable- needs of the smaller player without sacrificing quality. All stands are height and angle adjustable, and the included bass drum pedal features a smooth chain drive for fast, accurate play.
The Snare Drum is the voice of the drum set, and ROADSHOW JR. features a powerful 12”x4” model with similar specifications to Pearl’s popular Short Fuse auxiliary snare for professional players.
The bass drum is the tonal heartbeat of the drum set and the foundation for the rest of the complete drum set-up. The ROADSHOW JR bass drum includes locking, adjustable feet (or ‘spurs’), and secure mounting for toms and accessories.
ROADSHOW JR’s included cymbal set features a 13” crash and a set of 10” hi-hat cymbals. Great for accents and timekeeping until an upgraded cymbal set-up is acquired.
