Yeah I think the best idea is to try and get as many pro-level used cymbals as you can afford, since it will save for you in the long run. I'd try and get hats and a ride first (espeically if you...

Well first off, I'd definetely recommend the XS20s over the ZBTs, just because the XS20s are made of much better bronze (B20 rather than B8), which is what basically all high level cymbals (excluding...

It's workable, although the smallest I've gigged with has been that + hi hat and floor tom. I find that you can substitute the closed hi-hat with rim clicks, and open hi hat by riding on the crash...

Is this guy a troll or...?

But yes, I'd say this is nearly the pinnacle of what you could get. Top-of-the-line kit, the same with the cymbals. I'd be very happy if someone bought this for me,...

Hehehe not by a long way. Cymbals at least $3000 (assuming you're buying them new), you could probably half that if you found all the stuff used.

That kit has been discontinued, but the nearest...

You shouldn't really need to communicate that much if you've rehearsed enough. In this case, a nod or eye contact should really be enough to serve as a reminder. :)

Not often, really I only play with brushes for acoustic sets (and then I still don't use 'proper' brush technique then). I just feel that there's no point of coated heads if the area you're striking...

If I'm honest, the main 3 drumhead manufacturers (Aquarian, Evans, Remo) are all basically the same, except Evans uses a steeper collar (edge) shape, and Remo's coating comes off much more quickly...

Since you're sticking with acoustic guitar, it probably makes sense that the drummer uses brushes or rods or something, rather than sticks. A small kit, e.g. a 3-piece (small bass drum, snare drum,...

An 18" really is a jazz size. It'll be punchy, but it won't tune low at all and will more than likely be too quiet for metal. You may just about get away with a 20", but ideally you'd want 22"...
