Consarnit, if it ain't one thing, it's t'other! It's like, if I want a truly complete drum kit I gotta settle on "student" quality shells, or if I want pro-sounding drums, I gotta buy a shell kit and then
add on the hardware and cymbals and such later. . . and that'll end up costing the arm and leg I was planning on using to play my new kit! Why can't someone just put together a quality drum set that includes solid hardware, great sounding cymbals, and everything I'll need to start playing right away, dag nabbit
? Well now, looky here; looks like I was too busy hollerin' to realize that zZounds already has exactly the deal I'm looking for in the Pearl FZ725B Forum 5-Piece Drum Kit. . . my bust!
It Starts With Pro-Construction Pearl Forum Shells
Man, I really can
get a kit that includes hardware, cymbals, and a throne without having to sacrifice great shell tone. The Pearl FZ725B set is based around the great-sounding Forum shells. These guys are made using the same Heat Compression technique as Pearl's higher-cost shells, and their 100% poplar construction features the signature seamless-gap scarf-joint for drums that are punchy, resonant, and loud
! The shells are also outfitted with pro-grade, low-mass lugs and mounting brackets for increased resonance. . . and the black metal finish looks pretty sweet, too!
How About Some Cymbals And Matching Hardware?
Here's where those bare-bones "shell kits" leave off: cymbals and hardware. I can't even play the beat from "W.M.A."
without a hi-hat, guys, I mean seriously! Thankfully, Pearl has matched their flexible-style Forum shells with an equally adaptable and musical pack that includes the two most important cymbals you'll ever need. You get a 14" hi-hat pair that's not too heavy and not too light, perfect for just about any musical genre. That's complemented by an 18" crash/ride, a dynamic cymbal that fills the dual role of time keeper and accent. Holler. The FZ725B set gives you a place to hang your hats and ride, too, with matching black-finish metal cymbal and hi-hat stands. No scrimping on this hardware, either: the hat-stand is powered by a smooth chain drive and P120-style pedal for total control.
. . . A Throne, A Kick Pedal, Some Sticks. . .
. . . the three essential kit components that are most often overlooked, and they're all here! You'll be jammin' away the same day this package arrives with a pair of Vic Firth 5A sticks, a Pearl P70 chain-drive bass pedal, and a sturdy Pearl D-70W height-adjustable throne.
