which would you prefer?
I say go with the 5 piece, theres more room to work with.

v-drums.com has an acoustic section for drums as well if you need any info. I think TheGearPage.net also has a drum section.

If you get a cheap kit put some good heads on it and learn to tune them. You will get some fairly good sounds out of the kit.

5-piece.

Because you can turn a 5-piece into a 4-piece easily, but not the other 'round.

Also:

4-piece's are VERY common in rock and 'specially punk. IDK what weak Mexican hash you guys are smokin'.
