If you have the money, go for the whole AKG package

If you don't want to spend that much though, Samson are good solid mics and very cheap!

I used akgs for 20 years and switched to audix this year. The D6 is an awesome kick mic and the adx 90 tom mics are so small you can hardly see them. I still use a sennheiser 603 on the snare.
Here's a link to the pack I bought:
