    Looks like a kickin' little kit. I'd play it.

    The heads are so good nowadays that most kits will sound fine with modern heads on them (especially 2-ply heads).

    Pearl's Wood Fiberglass kit gets my vote for their most "bang for your buck" type of kit. They are amazing!

    They are very nice drums. But at that price point their are soooo many options. With the Roadshow you get the 3 pc with HH and a bass pedal and a cymbal boom arm. For about $300 bucks. That's crazy.... Crazy worth it! lol

    No one said or even suggested that. But it does seem like you may have simply dismissed this particular line simply based on perception and price point. I'm guessing many have. I know I did. I was looking for a Sonor Bop or Ludwig Breakbeats when someone offered me this. Only because of my love for Pearl did I even look at them. So glad I did. I think I'm going to buy one for my church to keep just so I don't have to transport mine back and forth. They are that affordable.

    Actually, you specifically suggested that I was unfamiliar with the Pearl Roadshow drums. I didn't dismiss your drums; I was disagreeing with your premise that the Roadshow was "second to none," in the lower-priced drum market. I also disagree with the the Roadshow being the most underrated. My vote for most underrated Pearl kit would be the new Session Studio Select. It will be overlooked by many drummers, while they are one of Pearl's best drum designs in a while.

    I didn't say the second to none bit. Either way I still think these are the most under rated Pearls. Just my opinion.

    I'm confused now. You mentioned "underrated" in the title of this post. Underrated usually means great kits that seem to go unnoticed. As in no one buys them but they are great or amazing kits. So far... it seems that you are just talking about "best kit for the value." If that was true, then yeah... the Roadshow might win. So are we talking about "most underrated kits" or "best value kits?"

    Pride is a sin. Naughty MusicMan; say three "Hail Peart"s in penance.

    Update! I'm still in love with this little Road Pro. It's a total grove machine. Oh and it has gone blond to boot!
