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,...

Looking at the list there, they all pretty much occupy the same price bracket, except the Silverstar which I think is a more entry-level kit.

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"...
