I have a buddy that wants to get into a drum kit for about a grand. I have a decent knowledge of drums, and I know you can get a very cool used kit for a G. We will intend to use the kit for both recording, and live. Any recomendations for new or used? Also I know there are serious brand loyalties to drummers, and im trying to stay away from pearl. He is also a taller dude, so I will predict he might like a kit with a few mounted toms. Thanks a ton.
