  • SJC Custom Drums Pathfinder Drum Kit, Drum Set

    The Pathfinder Series was designed to set you on the path to the stage! With maximum value and custom looks, if you're looking for your first kit or the perfect kit for the practice room or weekend gigs, the Pathfinder is for you!

    You asked and we delivered... introducing the Pathfinder Series; our most affordable series to date. We’ve combined custom specs with smaller sizes to create the ideal option for the drummer seeking quality tone in a transportable package. Featuring agathis shells with a beautiful cherry wood outer ply, this series exhibits a slightly deeper tone than maple while producing smooth high frequencies. The Crimson Super Satin finish combined with black SJC hardware creates a custom aesthetic for the player who’s looking to represent SJC without breaking the bank.

The cherry/agathis shells produce massive tones while the Crimson satin finish and black hardware really give you that custom look. With 4 piece and 5 piece options available that include everything you need to get started, you’ll be setting your path to the stage in no time! The Pathfinder series combines nicely with our Foundation Shadow Hardware pack as well!

    ❝...the Pathfinder, with its small sizes, is ideal for the student or hobbyist. The smaller sizes do take up less room, but they are also fashionable with a punchy sound.❞ - MusicRadar.com review October 2017 

    School of Rock

    SJC Drums is proud to supply numerous School of Rock's with the Pathfinder kit around the USA!

    I instantly thought back to the great sounding & beautiful looking kits I saw this past summer being used on the School of Rock All Star Tour. The SJC Pathfinder kit is the perfect combination of versatile playing depths through standard sized drums (which is perfect for us when you have kids of all ages, shapes, & sizes playing the kits) but accompanied by the beauty of that custom kit look.❞ - Michael Bulmash, School of Rock Baltimore
