Hello, I'm just getting started into drumming and am looking into picking up my first kit. I've been looking around on craigslist and at the local guitar center and have found a few things. Basically, I want to keep the cost down as low as I can without ending up with a kit that I can't stand the sound of. I've found a few Pearl Export kits on craigslist around the $450-550 range most with low-end cymbals. At guitar center I've seen a few Export shell sets for around 200-250, a Mapex Tornado 5pc for $150, and a Mapex M Birch for $350. Assuming that these are in good condition, what would be the best bang for buck purchase?
