    Default By far the most under rated Pearl kit out there

    Just got my Road show yesterday and WOW! I've owned DW Collectors, Pearl Masters, Tama Starclassics and all kinds of kits. And I'm here to tell you these things Sound fantastic and are built very well. For their price they may not only be the most under rated Pearl kit out there but the most under rated kit out there by anyone. For real the jazz configuration is out of this world when it comes to quality and sound vs. price. Check em' out if you haven't!

    They are very underrated. I was extremely impressed with the sound, fit, and finish for the price. The cymbals obviously need upgrading but the drums themselves are second to none.

    You make a good point so certainly let me clarify I'm only talking about the drums. them. I could Of had the hardware and the cymbols but I told the guy to just keep them because they definitely are very basic but the drums blew me away.

    I’m sure they’re a lot of bang for the buck, but “second to none” is a bit of a stretch.

    There is certainly something left to be desired in the drum hardware (perhaps, personal preference here).

    But a price point is a price point, and this are probably top of their class.

    This is what I meant. Obviously 'second to none' is relative. The drums won't compare to more expensive kits. But for their price, they are top of the line.

    Even "second to none" amongst lowest-line kits is debatable. I'd rock a Tama Club Jam or Imperialstar kit before I'd go with a Pearl Roadshow.

    Then I would wager a guess you haven't really checked one out.

    An update. They still kick &$# and really come alive when you put a little love in to them. Really this little kit has some serious mojo!

    You got me... I'm unfamiliar with Pearl drum shells and hardware . Enjoy your kit.
