    Drums are drums. It's you who makes them...

    That's too broad a question and extremely subjective. I'd say don't go cheap, but don't go overboard either... you may not even like playing drums.

    How about a Export? They are very popular. I don't know nuch about Pearl drums (ironic... I'm a Tama guy), but I think a lot of beginners use Export, Vision or Forum...

    A set of used, but not abused, Exports will do you just fine and not break the bank.

    If you are serious about drumming I would do this.
    Look at getting a used higher end kit that is in good
    shape. Also please put together a nice cymbal set too.
    There are great used cymbals online. Get them one at
    a time and try to avoid getting a box set. Hats,Ride etc.
    Look around e-bay,musicians friend and music go round.
    What sort of money can you spend ? These days used
    pro drums and cymbals are all around. Best of luck.

    22"x18",10"x8",12"x9",16"x16". Ian Paice Snare. Why not ...

    I can tell you this - don't buy ANY cymbals w/o hearing them IRL first.

    Trust me.

    AMEN TO THAT !
    I bought a 20" Sabian B8 Pro Light Rock Ride.
    Online. No chance to hear it.
    Worst purchase I've made in cymbals....
    It wasnt a "bad" cymbal, by all means it was very nice.
    Just NOT the sound I wanted in a ride.
    Far from the sound I wanted.
    Went with a XS20 20 inch Medium Ride.
    And that one I tried in store before laying out my $$$....
    By far my favorite cymbal.

    Cheap is a matter of what someone can afford. A day’s salary for some can be a lifetime’s savings for others. I suggest you determine your budget and then let us know so we can truly guide you.

    I do know for the drums themselves you will get a better quality used, but I suggest new hardware for reliability.
