I'm getting my first kit soon, and I was looking at this: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Pearl-Forum-6-pi ... m153.l1262


Can someone who has played a pearl forum please tell me how they are? Also I noticed it comes with a slave converter, does that make the single pedal that comes in the hardware pack into a double pedal? if so it would just be quite helpfull

Thank you for your help

A slave converter is -based on my knowledge- some thing you use to convert a double pedal into two single pedals so it can be used on a double bass set.
But im sure one of the more experienced members know.

The slave conversion package means that the drum set comes with a single bass pedal, and the dealer includes the kit with the left foot pedal and the slave connecting shaft/axis thingy. $1200 for a poplar shelled kit? I'd look on Ebay for something all maple or birch in good pre-owned condition. Poplar isn't terrible, but new poplar shells are nowhere near the sound quality of vintage maple-poplar-maple 3 ply ludwig shells.

Although the Pearl black cymbal stands look pretty sweet.

Check these out too, I'd prefer one of these sets.

I play Forums. They're great drums. It does say entry-level but personally I'd be happy using them for the rest of my career; they're solid and have a nice sound to them.
This could only be more awesome if it had tits and was on fire.
