I'm not a drummer but I'm looking to get a decent drumkit for the studio for instances when bands come in and haven't got the best sounding kit in the world.
Our studio is an all right little demo studio and over the last year or so we've managed to bring in some decent guitar and bass amps and think the next decent investment would be a well looked after kit.
I've got a budget of around £700-900 to spend on just the shells (have hardware already) and was looking at a Pearl Vision kit like the one in the link below and I'd really appreciate any opinions or suggestions for alternatives as well.
I would suggest going with more standard tom sizes. These are more shallow than usual and will lack a certain tone that comes with deeper shells. Standard sizes for these diameters are 10x8 (or 10x9), 12x10, 14x14, 16x16.
thanks for taking the time to reply guys. From speaking to friends, the general consensus was to look at a 2nd hand pearl masters and speak to a couple of small drum companies based in the UK and take it from there. Also the tom depth wasn't something I would have picked up on. Cheers Gamelan!
