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 stacks up:

 

HARDWARE

 

Cymbal, hi-hat, and snare drum stands should start with a strong and well-balanced tripod base. Double-braced legs and interlocking tilter adjustments are also vital for keeping all parts of the kit in place under the pressure of performance. ROADSHOW’s included hardware package is second-to-none in its class. All stands are dual-reinforced, height and angle adjustable, and feature double-braced legs to withstand the pounding onslaught of the heavy-hitting drummer.

 

SNARE DRUM

 

The Snare Drum is the voice of the drum set and captures everything from the loudest accents to the softest “ghost” notes. With a matching shell and finish, the ROADSHOW snare is full of attack and power, yet sensitive enough for drumming at any volume.

 

BASS DRUM

 

The bass drum is the tonal heartbeat of the drum set and should not only set the low-end pulse for the groove, but be a foundation for the rest of the complete drum set-up. The ROADSHOW kick drum features an extended tension/tuning range for low, chest-thumping bass frequencies, and includes locking, slip-free feet (or ‘spurs’), and secure mounting for toms and accessories.

 

CYMBALS

 

ROADSHOW’s included cymbal set features a 16” brass crash/ ride and a set of 14” brass/hybrid hats. Perfect for accents and timekeeping until an upgraded multi-cymbal set-up is acquired.
