Pearl Forum Drumset Review

Pearl Forum Drum Set

Pearl Forum Drum Set

I own the pearl forum series drum set(color:red wine). So far, since i am a beginner, the drum set does the job pretty well. I am very disappointed that it is only a vinyl wrap on the drums though.

I do like how i can still practice, and make a little bit of my own music too. In the future i would like to get some new cymbals and foot pedal though. The foot pedal isn't as responsive when you are trying to play your bass drum faster.

Overall, for a beginner like myself, i think it's a great drum set. When i'm older sure i would like to upgrade a few things.

Ive has this drum set for 6 months now and i think it's doing a great job at a fair price.

Back to the beginning. NEW
by: Jojo

Haven't played in 47 years and the itch got too great. Saw an 8 pc PEARL Forum kit for ok price and scratched my itch. A bit disappointed with quality, but picking up better [ZBT] cymbals, and kick will help. This is really starter-quality kit, but since 47 years is a long layoff, these will suffice for getting back in a groove. It will still be better than playing the couch and drummimg my fingers on table tops.

Pearl Vrs Pacific Drums NEW
by: Dave Starr

I too own a forum series set and the only things I upgraded was the kick pedal to a the duelist kick pedal and upgraded my cymbals to zildjian cymbals had this set for 13 years now and would not trade it for nothing, in my opinion Pacific Drums are a piece of junk played on them........hate them they sound like crap and don't stay tuned worth a sh** I play and would indorse Pearl before any one else because they sound good and are proven to be road tested...been there done that

pearl drums NEW

I've been drumming for 33 years. I still to this day play my 7pc Pearl Masters. Candy Apple red, Zildian ZBT cymbals. I use a TAMA chain driven pedal. I play classic rock. Works great for me. If your wanting to go fast with the bass pedal, try learning how to use a double pedal. It moves the snare and Hi Hat a little but you will quickly adjust to the change. Good Luck and best wishes on many more years behind your kit......
