Practice Time is Over, It's Time to Get Serious.
To elevate the playing field for today’s advancing drummer, Pearl has drawn on 70 years of award-winning drum craftsmanship to create new Decade Maple series drums. As the first all Maple lacquered drum set, Decade is built to push the boundaries of performance and value and project your drumming voice with authority.
Pearl’s 70 years of drum craftsmanship culminate with the kit you’re ready to step up to. With 5.4mm Maple shells, pro-level features, and gorgeous lacquer finishes, Decade elevates your performance at a price that was previously impossible.
With feature-heavy Decade Maple drums are perfect as a primary kit for evolving players, or a secondary “gigging” kit for the seasoned pro.
Available in five custom colors, Pearl’s cultured lacquer finishing process is applied to each shell exterior to add spectacular vibrancy.
Decade’s low-mass/low-contact shell hardware assures optimum shell performance and rock-solid durability. Features include Uni-Lock gearless tom arms, insulated die-cast claw hooks, R40 Air Suspension Floor Tom feet, and a newly-designed mini lug.

Without a doubt the most sophisticated hardware ever offered on a drum kit at this price. The BC-830 Boom stand, C-830 Cymbal stand, and S-830 Snare Drum stand all feature infinitely adjustable Uni-Lock Tilters for pinpoint positioning. Robust 1”diameter base tubes and 7/8” diameter center tubes with sturdy double-braced tripods provide exceptional rigidity and stability.
The H-830 Hi-Hat stand features swivel legs that accommodate double pedals.
The P-930 drum pedal combines the styling and performance of the Demon Drive pedal with the Eliminator interchangeable cam technology for the ultimate in power, speed, and control.
Pearl’s Superior Shell Technologie 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.
Decade’s 6-ply/5.4mm all Maple shell is what sets it apart from the other players in the field. The final product of ten years of process and material refinement, each cross-laminated ply incorporates Pearl’s proprietary Superior Shell Technology. The resulting thin (but powerfully strong) shell reacts quickly to the stroke, producing beautifully resonant highs and thundering lows.
