Get your playing off to the right start with the Pearl Roadshow starter drum kit.

The Pearl Roadshow is the cheapest way you can own a brand new Pearl Drum Kit. They are Pearl’s entry into the start kit market for beginners. Although they cost a little bit more than other starter kits out there, this is due to Pearl’s uncompromising commitment to quality and they really have came up with an impressively solid and great sounding starter kit. It even comes with a free stick bag.

Pearl have long been one of the leading names in the drum world and have a great reputation in both pro level and beginner drum kits. Their Pearl Export drum kits are known to be the best selling kits of all time.

Anyone with experience of learning a musical instrument will tell you that there is nothing more disheartening than trying to learn with the wrong equipment. Conversely the right instrument inspires creativity and encourages practise. It was this knowledge that guided Pearl in designing their Roadshow range.

This all in one starter kit comes with everything a beginner drummer needs including 14″ Hi hats and a 16″ Crash Cymbal which can really save you money since you don’t have to buy them individually. It includes a drum stool and a stick bag so you can be confident that after buying this kit you’re not going to have to shop for anything else for a while.

The following discounts and deals are available on this product. You can use as many of these deals at one time as you like. Simply add this product to your basket first to see the discounted prices!

Upgrade your Cymbals now and save 10%

Buy any cymbal set at the same time as your kit and save a fantastic 10%. Cymbals are quite often the weak point on starter kits and the first thing drummers choose to upgrade. We tend to recommend the Paiste PST101 range to drummers buying their first cymbal set but feel free to browse our full range of cymbal packs here.

20% off all Stools when bought with drum kits

This drum kit comes with a stool included but we’ve set up this great offer so that you can choose your own one. You can pick from our whole catalogue of stools so if you decide to treat yourself to a really comfy one you can make a great saving! Our recommendation is the Custom Percussion Drum Throne

5% off all Cases and Bags when bought with a drum kit

If you plan to transport your drums in the future then a good set of cases or bags is a must have so we thought we’d save you some money when you bought them all at once with us. The Protection Racket American Fusion Drum Case Set are fantastic quality and will fit this drum kit perfectly. Check out our massive range of cases here

5% off all Silence Pads when bought with a drum kit

All too often we see people come back to us a week later looking for silence pads when they realise just how loud the drums really are. Save yourself some time and money by picking them up now if you think you’ll need them. There’s a huge range of Silence Pads but we recommend the QT American Fusion Silence Pads for this kit.

10% Off Drum Sticks when you spend £250

We like to say thank you when a customer places a big order with us and what better way than with a discount on the one thing we’re always going to need more of? We have a massive range of drum sticks for you to choose from. Buying as a gift? You can’t really go wrong with the Vic Firth 5A


Pearl Roadshow Shells are made from 6 plys of bonded asian poplar with a 45 degree hand cut bearing edge for a precise sound and a optimum connection with the head. The shells of the Roadshow drum kit are put through a heat and pressure curing process which produces well made shells that can be relied upon.


Sturdy and ‘built to last’ double braced hardware ensures that this kit can live up to even the hardest of hitters. Smart features like locking tom mounts, locking tilters and telescopic bass drum spurs make this one of the most solid starter kits on the market. This kit includes a stool and a chain driven kick pedal.

Snare Drum

The snare drum is the voice of your kit and the Pearl Roadshow has some voice! With 8 dual tuning lug and an easy to use on/off snare strainer this drum has a surprising amount of sensitivity.

Stick Bag

A cool bonus feature of the Pearl Roadshow is the included stick bag. Not many kits come with this added accessory but it is an essential every drummer ends up buying eventually.
