This is no different than buying drums within certain price-points. every manufacturer has great stuff and is highly competitive and highly comparable in quality. Anything at a given price from the major players will be more or less as good as everything else in that range. Go with what you like the looks of and what meets your desires for geared cymbal tilters, snare baskets, spring and/or footboard angle adjustments on the hi-hat etc, single or double braced or flat base. Do you want two or three legs on the hi-hat? Do you care if the legs rotate to get out of way of double pedals. Memory locks? Others probably have more "features" I didn't list. Look things over carefully for adjustments and such. I recently bought the Tama Classic Light Weight stuff. I love the cymbal stands and the snare stand. I have a love-hate thing going with the hi-hat. It feels, sounds and plays very well; however, the adjustments for the spring tension and footboard angle are about as cumbersome as it gets--at least for me. I don't know if they have hardware packs, but there are stores online who still have Sakae HW in stock at closeout discontinued pricing. Company is gone, so caveat emptor.Buying in a pack seems most economical as far as getting stands, hi hat and kick pedal. Based upon that , what do y’all recommend as being a good value but also has a great pedal etc ,?
I forgot the 600 series.
