This is Pearl’s next step up from the Roadshow line mentioned above. It offers the same configuration options and hardware quality as the Roadshow.

The difference is in the drums themselves.

They use a combination of poplar and mahogany that gives you more dynamic power and longer sustain, especially in the lower range.

Let's talk about the build quality.

Our short answer: we were impressed!

Maybe the best use of this drum set is as a backup gigging kit for professionals. It’s relatively light-weight and easy to assemble and take apart quickly. The suspended mounts and double-braced stands make it very road-worthy, while the SST process used to build the shells gives them a consistent tone that won’t fade with time.

Surprised we didn't score this one higher on our list of best drum kits?

Here's why:

The reason this doesn’t rank higher on the list comes down to value. The sound quality isn’t as high as with high-end kits, but it doesn’t give you the same bang for your buck as entry-level options. It also doesn’t include any cymbals, meaning you’ll need to leave some extra space in your budget. It’s best-suited for intermediate players who are a bit too advanced for beginner kits but not quite ready to invest in a professional drum set.
