"Great gigging kit!"

I've been playing drums for over 20 years, and gig often. I have 2 tama kits; a Rockstar for my students, and my birch limited edition Silver star for recording and larger gigs. Pearl has always been the foundation, so i figured why not. I bought this kit solely to leave in the cases and gig with. I wanted something that looked high end, without a heavy tag! This kit looks great, and surprisingly sounded amazing out the box! I tuned it up, added some moon gels and BOOM! All that's included makes this the ULTIMATE value! Pearl went all out on minor details. Pearl is inscribed everywhere, which give it a classy feel...down to the bass drum dampening pad. Only down part is that the snare is probably the only thing that sounds "cheap." I've tried 2 different heads (triple threat and Ambassador X) and haven't gotten the sound i was looking for, or a sound that i liked. I'm still experimenting, but for now i use one of my other 4 snare drums. As for the pedal, it feels good, but I choose to use another one that's double chained. Hihat stand is good, but i use a 2 legged stand. Everything I don't use from this kit is for my students, and is perfect!! Beginners will be in awe of this kit! Perfect for intermediate players, and a great change of pace for the pro (without an endorsement) to use for regular gigs that need a simply set up.
Overall, a perfect kit for anyone that wants to play!
