Cymbals are very personal and easy to lug around. You’ll need the cymbal stands though. Most drummers I know including myself have several snares and several sets of hi hats. Maybe even multiple rides. As suggested I put the bulk of your money into the kit and IF you have money left over some 13” and 14” high hats. New Beats are pretty universally accepted as a good recording hi hat. I’ve been shopping for a set of 13’s and they can be had used for around $100. Do your homework. The sets from the 80’s are the better sets and you can pick them out by their insignia. There’s a website that goes into all that. I guess I should buy the next set I see since I’m posting this.
