I am sorry for going outside of your choices, but with the new Saturn IV arriving soon, the older generation can be had for almost what you are going to pay for an intermdiate kit. Instead you will have a pro level kit, that you will not need to upgrade!
probably in the us and europe, but the saturn iv wont be arriving here for quite some time after its release, we dont get the "new" things soon and the prices are set accordingly
Pearl Vision Birch.
You can never go wrong with Pearl's quality. Unsurpassed.
what model do you recomend?, because the VBL comes without hardware and i need the hardware.
My choice would be the Ludwig Element SE, since the Yamaha Stage Customs are not on your radar.
do you know the difference (in sound) beetween the regular birch and the marbled birch from the ludwig?
Welcome to the forums and back to the world of drumming. Your english is just fine!!
I'd go with the Ludwigs. You'll probably notice all the different answers point you in different directions, that's because some of us are pretty attached to one particular drum manufacturer.
However, the Ludwig 6-piece is the best bang ( ) per drum for the dollars you are going to spend.
Have you thought of buying on-line? I know the shipping will be very high, but I just looked up the Ludwig Element 6 piece birch for $749 US which I believe equates to around $3900 in your currency. Just something to consider.

i cant buy something that big and expensive online, the taxes i would have to pay to the argentine gobernment are huge, and plus the shipping, it end up costing more than what it cost here. Beside i coudnt use the warranty (or it will be very hard and expensive).

Which is why I would never come on a dum site and ask for opinions on which kit I should buy! Go out and try them yourself. Everyone makes good drums nowadays. Go pic the one that speaks to you, not to us!
here in buenos aires, its really hard to find a place where they let you try the drums, and if you find it, it probably doesnt have what you are looking for.
thanks to all for the answers, keep em comming!
