Default Hardware pointers

Hi All!
What would you guys recommend me to look at if I'm interested in good value for money, mid level hardware?

I'm not touring, I'm just playing for fun. But I like good quality feel, and I do not need the best.

Which brand, which series?

Thanks for any input.

//Jörgen

I play all Yamaha hardware. The single braced 600 and 700 series does everything I need it to do.

Really no company will steer you wrong. The differences in construction at similar price points will be negligible. I use Yamaha and Gibraltar, their midrange items are great and will last you years. Other good midrange alternatives include Tama, PDP, Mapex, and Sonor.

If you have an opportunity, visit a music store and take a moment to look at hardware. It might change your mind about some hardware. I recently went down to my local drum store and looked at Pearl's snare stands (900 and 1000 series) - and then and there decided to cross them off my list because the wingscrew on both their stands wouldn't tighten enough to keep the snare basket from swiveling around.

I use Pearl 900 series on both of my kits. I absolutely love the BC-900 straight/boom stands, and have had no issues with the snare stands.
