The Pearl Rhythm Traveler is the perfect kit for both silent practice and compact live performance.
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 five 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. Rhythm Traveler 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-inch, 12-inch and 14-inch and their 5-inch 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 13x5-inch 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 drum head, while producing virtually no sound. 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.
Speaking of cymbals, the Rhythm Traveler comes with real cymbals for live playing: a 16-inch crash/ride cymbal and a pair 13-inch hi-hats. Thick rubber cymbal mufflers are included for practicing.
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.

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. Pearl's 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.
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.
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 drum head, 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.
