Re: Beginner, Intermediate, and Pro Kit Definitions

I'm a big boy - of over 50 years. :)

I'm fine. But the experience had me genuinely curious about how others would sort into those categories.

Re: Beginner, Intermediate, and Pro Kit Definitions

What triggered this was me purchasing a kit for an insanely low amount of dollars, deciding I could definitely gig with the kit, and then hearing other views about how it had to be junk since it was...

Re: Pearl Roadshow Jazz Kit

And the other finishes look much sharper. I have the bronze. Looks very good.

Re: Pearl Roadshow Jazz Kit

I'm attracted to the jazz configuration because it is small, light, and inexpensive, while sounding very good.

Re: Pearl Roadshow Jazz Kit
