4 cymbals will run you quite a bit. Find a second hand shell pack with enough toms for your liking. Then dress it up with some quality skins (better learn how to tune them) and then buy your hardware, hi-hats, and cymbals. This will cost you quite a bit though. At least $1000, which is how many pounds?

You're never gonna get a good pedal or good cymbals WITH a set, unless it's used and been pre-set-up.

A pack of your 4 typical cymbals of decent quality is gonna run you about 200$ USD.

A good double bass pedal is gonna run you 200-300$ USD.

And I can't suggest any sets until you specify how many pieces.

I agree. I love Pearls. Another good choice would be a Ludwig.

most generic drum kits are always 5 piece.

My advise if your going to be playing death metal, is get your drummer to buy a **** old kit, anything, and buy a good bass pedal and cymbals.

Look, it's not about the make of the shells, it's about the skins and how they are tuned. My kit is an old CB that I bought used for $150 CAD. When I got it home it sounded like crap, but I replaced the skins, batter and resonant, with Remo heads (coated 2-ply on batter, clear 1-ply resonant) on all the drums and tuned them all to my liking and now it sounds ****in beet. Then I found some used Sabian B8 hats, a new B8 14" crash, and a cracked zildjian turkish cymbal that works quite well as a ride.

^ (To Dixon) True, but 5 piece can be 2 tom toms or 1 tom tom and 2 floor toms. There's so many combinations out there, especially when you consider that he's going to be playing metal.

On a budget, I'd suggest looking at some ddrum kits.

Not true. Wood, porting, even the holes made by the mounting screws all change how the set sounds. That's why many people prefer floating/suspended sets.

get a really nice set with no cymbols and still use the elec cymbols for the time being. then every month save up for a new part cymbol or not for your kit.

Alright, so don't pick up a full new set that costs $300

What I'm saying is there's no need for an expensive Pearl or Ludwig set. Just go down to the music store and ask if there are any used kits available.

That would be fine if the kid was a beginner, but from my understanding he's not. He already knows what he's doing.

No one said he had to get a Pearl or a Ludwig, I personally despise both of those brands. In fact, I haven't argued with you about sets:price range at all, so I have no idea what you're rolling your eyes over. All I said is your totally overlooking sound quality, which shouldn't be the case even if you are a beginner.

When I started playing 4 years ago, I got a standard 'Tama' kit with Sabian cymbals, the bass drum needed stuffing, but once that was done it sounded - and still sounds - fucking awesome.

That set me back about £475. You don't need to splash out a huge amount on a kit.

And I'm saying that any real drum kit will sound great with the right heads and tuning.
