Re: **OFFICIAL best drum kit for all budgets discussion**
That's kind of what the drum makers already do, and it allows for a lot of room to negotiate within those three groups - I think that's why they do it - it makes it easier to push someone into a more expensive product in a given category.

Another kit I would like to toss into the mix that is marketed and priced mid level (around $600 US) is the Yamaha Stage Custom Birch. Overall this is a pretty nice setup and the drums sound good. I was drumming for a church and this was my choice when they said they'd buy a kit for the church - it fit their budget, but it offered a lot in terms of quality and sound. In many ways this kit is a lot like its big brother, the Recording Custom. The shells are the same number of plies and thicknesses. They had a nice punchiness to them and didn't sound budget level at all once I put new heads on them.
Your = possessive - your stuff, your dog, your car, etc
You're = you are - a contraction.
Learn it. Love it.
