$2500 is likely really tight if you want something that drummers will prefer to use over their own kit. In my opinion that likely means high end DW, Yamaha, etc.

I would suggest that you don't invest in cymbals - you will quickly blow your budget. Drummers are especially picky about cymbals and will tend to want to use their own.

I actually was just considering selling a great studio kit - I have a Yamaha Recording Custom 20th Anniversary Steve Gadd edition set (22 kick, 10, 12, 14, 15 toms, 14X6.5 snare) in translucent black stain finish, in very good condition. IMHO it sounds fantastic and everyone who uses it raves about it. I'm just not recording drums as much anymore and so would consider letting it go for a fair price.

If you are interested, PM me and we could probably work something out.
