I absolutely love this kit. It's very lightweight and portable yet well built. Looks great and sounds amazing, I threw on some Evans batter heads stock resos for now and it sounds great. Great job Pearl

That's what I thought. It looks like the 457 series, but I've never seen that finish before.

The hats ride and left crash are Wuhan 457,the crash ride and splash are both Wuhan Traditionals and Wuhan China. I must admit they all sound amazing and I'm a big Sabian guy. My last kit was all AAX and HH. I have less than half the money in the Wuhans and I'm happy with them.

I have some Wuhan New-Traditional cymbals on my Roadshow. They sound way better than entry level B8 cymbals for the same price point. I was going for a darker sounding setup, and I'm satistfied with the hi-hats and the crash. I'm not sure about the ride though. It is darker than the Sabian B8/Pro and Zildjian ZBT ride, but it's a little brighter than the Zildjian A ride. I would say the ride is in between the Zildjian A and Zildjian K ride. Besides that, Wuhan cymbals are great for beginners and they are also good spare cymbals for professional drummers who don't want to use their expensive cymbals for a small gig.

I've heard good things about the Wuhan's. I've considered them in the past but just never pulled the trigger on anything!

So far I've had no complaints with the Wuhan 457s. Based on the sound of the 18" traditional crash ride and 8" splash I am thinking about a set of Traditional hats, maybe a 17 Traditional thin and a 20" Traditional medium/heavy ride. They have a very cool sounding Linear Stack that I'm interested in as well.

I have a 12" traditional splash (that is kinda more crash like than splashy) and I love it. Its just a touch trashy and kinda airy. I also use an 18" riveted china, though it didn't have rivets in it when I got it (used) and I added them back to it but I've been thinking of removing them again.

Did you get longer floor tom legs? Set up looks great and I agree as a fellow Roadshow owner they sound great!
