I've only begun drumming and I don't intend on ever being pro but I'd like a good set to last me. I'm not terribly rich but I'm willing to spend a little extra for a decent set. Looking for something under 1000 but if you know several in a range of prices that would be great. Right now I'm playing on a Pearl set, I'm not exactly sure what it is as it's my brother's and he bought it from someone else and I don't really know how it compares because I've only played on it and one other set which is a really cheap Tama set. Any input is appreciated guys, thanks.
