Pearl Roadshow RS525WFC 5-Piece Acoustic Drum Set w/ 22″ Kick

89 out of 100. Incorporating 80+ ratings and reviews.

Most 5-piece kits have 2 mounted toms and 1 floor tom – the point of difference with the RS525WFC is that it comes with 1 mounted tom and 2 floor toms – the smaller of the two floor toms has a greater diameter than most mounted 2nd toms so it allows for lower tones.

  • 14″ x 6.5″ snare
  • 12″ x 9″ rack tom

The positive customer reviews say this is a good drum set for the money. The quality of sound from the drums was consistently praised in positive reviews.


The cymbals got a bit of criticism in both positive and negative reviews with many saying that you’ll probably want to change them as you get more experienced.


If you’re looking for something slightly different in terms of tom sizes, and want to stick with a major drum brand, then this is for you.
