If Bond, James Bond were a drummer, the Pearl Rhythm Traveler 5-piece portable drum kit is the set that Q would present to him at the mission briefing. The four open-bottom toms and kick all stack together into a pile so compact you can fit it into a single bass drum bag, making one-handed portage of an entire shell-set possible. What's more, this kit ships with muffle heads so you can rehearse silently. Imagine: a professional Pearl drum kit that you can play on stage, in studio, and at all times of the day -- and that you can carry all at once without any help.

A Perfectly Portable, Professional Kit

These kit was designed with the quick getaway in mind, and it strikes a perfect balance between "lightweight" and "sturdy." Still, this is a professional trap kit all the way. From Pearl's patented Heat Compression Molded, real wood shells to the fast kick pedal to the included brass hi-hats and crash-ride, the Pearl Rhythm Traveler can hack it on stage and even in the studio, no problem. Because what's the point of portability unless the set is one you'd be proud to show up with?

Silent Practice with Muffle Heads

Just like a secret agent's bow-tie camera, the Rhythm Travel is more than a one-trick pony. This unique kit ships with a set of muffle heads and rubber cymbals for stealthy practice sessions. The benefits of silent rehearsal on a kit that's got the same action and same head spacing as the one you'll play live are obvious: it's like being able to practice on your main kit anytime, anywhere. And switching from silent back to a live kit is as simple as changing drumheads and cymbals.

It Actually Sounds Like a Drum Kit

This kit is ultra-portable, yes, with its shallow shells and stackable design -- but it sounds good too. Pearl's patented Heat Compression Molded, real wood shells produce a warm, full-bodied tone. The fast kick pedal, included brass hit-hats and crash-ride come together to make a set that you'll be proud to bring to a gig.

Product Description

If you're like most drummers, rehearsal time is limited. Simply finding a place to practice without disturbing the peace can be a nightmare. But imagine being able to practice anytime of the day or night, on a full size 5-piece kit, without disturbing people in the next room. Then imagine carrying the same kit, neatly stacked in the passenger seat of your car, to do a live gig. The Pearl Rhythm Traveler is the only kit that combines both these drumming necessities at a price well within reach of any working drummer. Rhythm Traveler is the go anywhere, practice anytime kit of your dreams.

With Rhythm Traveler, you get a complete set of ultra-high-quality drums and hardware, specifically designed to be lightweight yet super sturdy and highly durable. Rhythm Traveler shells are manufactured by Pearl's patented Heat Compression Shell Molding System, which is the same process used for every drum Pearl makes. Tom sizes are 10", 12" and 14" and their 5" deep, single-headed design allows them to neatly stack for compact travel while producing a great tone for live performance. Rhythm Traveler's wood shell snare drum is 5" x 13" and produces a very warm, full-bodied snare tone with excellent crack. With Rhythm Traveler, you get two complete sets of heads, one for live performance and one set of Pearl's Muffle Heads for silent practicing. Muffle Heads are manufactured of a super strong mesh fabric that responds like a regular drumhead, while producing virtually no sound. Together with Pearl's Silent Cymbal Pads, Rhythm Traveler produces the realistic feel of a regular kit, complete with rim shots, every time you rehearse. And the best part is changing from a practice kit to a live kit is as easy as changing the batter heads and adding cymbals. Rhythm Traveler is great for the working drummer needing a small portable kit, the beginning drummer needing to get started with a high quality set, or any drummer that's tired of practicing at someone else's convenience.

Muffle Head

Pearl's Muffle Heads allow you to silently practice anytime while maintaining the feel of a regular drumhead.

Silent Cymbals

Together with their Muffle Heads, Rhythm Traveler's Silent Cymbal Pads offer the perfect combination of feel and performance.

Compact Travel

Rhythm Traveler's toms neatly stack to create an extremely compact kit for transport. Every facet of the kit, including every piece of hardware, has been designed with the working and rehearsing drummer in mind. Their super sturdy 70W Series hardware offers both double braced legs and a low mass, lightweight design, making it the perfect compliment to Rhythm Traveler. You no longer have to have a large vehicle to be a drummer. With Rhythm Traveler your kit can even fit in the passenger seat of your car.

Live Performance

Rhythm Traveler is the perfect kit for most any live performance situation where space, or the lack of it, is a major concern. With Rhythm Traveler, you're set-up, sounding great, and ready to play before most drummers could even unload their set. And when the gig is over, you're out just as quickly. With Rhythm Traveler, going from practice to live is as easy as changing the batter heads and adding a couple of cymbals.

Silent Rehearsal

When you're ready to practice, there's no substitute for the feel of a real drum kit. Rhythm Traveler's silent Muffle Heads and cymbal pads allow you to keep the response of a drumhead, and quietly rehearse anytime you choose. Plug in a set of phones and play along with your favorite tunes, or just grab a few minutes when everyone else is sleeping, with Rhythm Traveler anytime can be rehearsal time.

Rhythm Traveler Hardware

Rhythm Traveler comes complete with a full set of Pearl's 70W Series double braced hardware. This impressive hardware line was developed to provide maximum stability and durability, while keeping weight to a minimum for ease of transport. Every function and feature on their 70W series hardware is straight forward and dependable, with ease of use as the ultimate goal. All pipe joints feature an extended nylon joint bushing providing an extremely strong and stable adjustment system.

Rhythm Traveler's H-70W Hi-Hat stand offers a direct link pull system for precise feel and strong action, sturdy double braced legs, full height adjustability and a fully adjustable cymbal clutch. The S-70W provides adjustments for both height and basket tension, and its double braced leg tripod and low center of gravity make it an extremely stable stand. The C-70W cymbal stand provides a 3-section adjustment system, a deep gear cymbal tilter, and sturdy double braced legs. The P-70 bass drum pedal features a great feeling strap drive cam system, full adjustment over spring tension and Duo Beat beater for use with both standard and Muffle Heads.

"Great for Beginners and Pro's"
Sound: The Kit sounds surprisingly great. I wasn't expecting much out of a 20x8 kick, but it really sounds well mic'ed up. I use Remo Pinstripe batters on the toms, Snare gets a emperor X batter, and an ambassador reso, and a Powerstroke 3 batter for the kick, stock reso. The snare alone I find myself using more and more, it has a nice crack when tuned properly with the stock head combination. Feature: I gave this an 8 simply because there aren't that many features. Half sized toms, compact design, Mutes and cymbals. I would have expected some better bass drum spurs with the kit for the price. The Hardware is pretty solid which I find to be a balance with the negitive issue with the spurs. You can set this kit up anytime anywhere and play wich is a nice feature and everything is included to do so. Ease of Use: Setting this kit up is easy. Tuning it took me about 30 minutes. Packing it up takes about the same time as it does to tune it, wich is a life saver, when in a pinch. Quality: I like the quality in the shells, finish and hardware. Sure the stands could be heavier in my opinion (as I am on the road a lot, but well worth the price. Value: This has a lil steep price for the features of a small scale kit. However the quality, ability to play anytime, anywhere and compact design make up for the price. Manufacturer Support: Never had an issue that needed to go to pearl, however the first time I ordered this kit, it was back-ordered. I wasn't told about it and needed this kit asap (through another company). One e-mail to another company solved everything. within two weeks I got it. The Wow Factor: There are similar kits out there if you look. However there are several benifits to this one, which make this kit the go-to kit. Smaller shells, wich can be added to an existing kit, and the kick can be used as a Gong bass, which I do. So many uses this kit can handle would make it desireable to Beginners, and Gigging musicians alike. Overall: Overall, this is a great product. Don't get me wrong, I use this kit along side my $9,000+ kit! Mainly for last minute gigs or sessions. Yes this can hold it's own in the studio! Everything fits into a 18x20 drum bag and can go right into the trunk of a car. When I can make more money while spending less, it is worth it to me.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great, sharp-looking beginner set!"
Sound: The toms sound great for the price and size. The included cymbals, however, are very tinny and clangy sounding. You'll have to replace the cymbals soon if you play often. But the toms are awesome. Feature: The toms and the hardware are great for the price and size. It is nice that cymbals come with the kit, but they are very low quality. I've had the kit for only a few months, and I am already in the process of replacing the cymbals. They sound pretty bad. And my top hi-hat cymbal is now unplayable because it keeps getting knocked in and inverted when I hit it! Ease of Use: This kit is very easy to use and set up. Quality: Every part of this set is well-made and durable, apart from the cymbals. You can play them pretty hard, and they will take it. The hardware is light but sturdy. Value: Good price for a quality beginner/traveler kit. Manufacturer Support: No support needed so far. The Wow Factor: It is a sharp looking kit. Black Pearl drums are just classic! Throw some Zildjians on this guy and bam! Overall: Love the set; the cymbals it comes with are the only downside.
