3 choices of drums

I have been looking around for a while for a new set of drums.I've narrowed it down to 3 sets:
1.Pacific MXR 5 piece kit withe a 24"X18" bass drum and maple shells.
2.Taye Rockpro 5 piece kit with 24"X 16" bass drum and birch and basswood shells
3.Gretsch Club Rock 5 piece kit with a 26" bass drum and mahogony shells

There is not a dealer that carry these brands that's not 3 hours away. If anyone owns or has heard any of these kits, I would love to hear what you think of them. So any help would be greatly appreciated before I go any further.
Thanks

Do you already play a 24" or 26" kick drum?
Going from a 22" to a 24" took me some time to get used to and to get my pedal REdialed in, going from a 22" to a 26" might not be the best idea plus with a 26" you're limited to head choices.

Just curious what factors lead to those 3 choices vs other manufacturers and models.

This thread is 9 years old. Poor guy got no response back then, and I doubt he'll be back, though that would be pretty cool.

I wonder what he bought?

Have you never used the Wayback Machine? I will go get a snapshot of the 2007 page and answer him then. I don't think it will help much now, but maybe it will help him make the right choice back then.

haha, yes now we are all curious as to what you bought, even all these years later. He most likely forgot he even posted asking this .
