Default Help me decide a kit!

Hey, This is my second time posting, Still hasn't decided on a kit, hopefully, I will get it within this month.

Help me decide one from these two sets or if you have a better one please do suggest it.

Zildjian K-Custom Dark
DW PDP Mainstage (with hardware) = $1,540 including extra cymbal stand.


Pearl decade (with hardware)
Istanbul agop xist brilliant = around $1650 with throne and extra cymbal stand.

I will order everything from Thomann since its the only site that ships here.
My budget is $1650. I play mostly rock metal and fusion. This will be my kit so next 10 years.

I like Mapex, I think they offer great value. An armory rock setup is about 900 euros and I've heard very good things about them.


Throw in a sabian aax xplosion set for 800 euros and its a rock set up that, for me, would be ideal


Just my opinion, there's literally 100s of options out there. Good luck!
Opinions are like Pearl Exports. Everybody has (had) one.

There are so many kits out there at this price range you can't go wrong with any, so go for the finish and hardware you like. Something to consider if you are splitting your money between drums and cymbals - invest in the best cymbals you can afford. It looks like you are which is great, but while you can make any of these kits sound great with good heads and tuning, but there's nothing you can do to improve the quality of a cymbal's sound.
