  • Hardware on Forum Drums: Sturdy?

    I have an Export 22"x18" bass drum from the 2000's right before Pearl discontinued the Export series. I also have an Export 12" tom from the 80's. Sometime this year I am going to buy a floor tom, and I like poplar shells. Is the hardware on Forum drums as good as the hardware on Export drums? I plan to use this kit, and I need a drum I can count on. Peace and goodwill.

    The hardware on Exports is more heavy duty compared to that of the Forum.

        That's the case.
        Better chroming and much better threads.

          Does hardware from other series fit the forum shells? Just curious in case I come across someone selling or giving away used hardware from another series.
