A Complete Package

The Forum Drumset package includes absolutely everything you will need to get started on your path drumming satisfaction, including a set of high-quality cymbals, a pair of 5A sticks and a sturdy drum throne.

Pearl Quality

Every Pearl drum is made using Pearl's Superior Shell Technology for extreme strength, optimal resonance and superior tone. Forum is no exception, and it is Pearl's superior quality at every level that sets a Pearl drum apart from any other in the industry. Pearl believes so strongly in its product that it offers a Limited Lifetime Warranty on every wood drum it makes. It is this commitment to quality that makes Pearl a leader in today's percussion world.

New Features

Forum Series drumsets offer many upgraded features. Pearl's patented Integrated Suspension System Tom Mounts, already featured on Pearl's Vision Series, now come standard on Forum. The I.S.S. Mounts attach to the hoop of the toms without contacting the shell, maximizing resonance and minimizing time spent changing drumheads. Improved cymbals provide a much higher quality sound, new low-mass lugs increase resonance, and three of four finishes (Jet Black, Pure Whitem Red Wine) feature black drum hardware.

Shell Composition

Forum drums are made from 100% Poplar. These 6 ply, 7.5mm shells give the Forum drums a punchy, consistent tone. All Forum drums are made with Pearl's exclusive Superior Shell Technology (S.S.T.). This is the very same process that every other Pearl drum is created with, including Reference and Masterworks, which gives Forum drums a level of quality and consistency that other drums in its category just can't match.


Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology utilizes a proprietary technique for achieving the ultimate air chamber. It begins with select woods chosen for their unique acoustic attributes, milled to precise thickness with overlapping scarf joint seams, for a perfect air-tight fit. The wood plies are saturated with Pearl’s proprietary “AcoustiGlue” that permeates every pore and dries to the exact consistency of the wood for optimum resonance. Finally, the plies are formed in high-temperature molds with 1000 PSI of hydraulic pressure to produce perfect drum shells that exhibit superior tone, optimal resonance and extreme strength.

Snare Drums

All Forum snare drums come with a matching 6 ply, 7.5mm 100% Poplar Snare Drum.
