This is what I do at home.
I have 4hi/2lo. Using 3 tom mics. I picked up the cheap Cadd mic set (not the cheapest, but the one above the bottom (around $200 or so)):
Kick, snare, 3 toms, 2 cymbals.
Everything I needed for my home use (which sounds a lot like what the OP is looking for). I would NEVER try to use these things for any type of professional recording or demo of sorts.
