pearl forums are decent kits that wont break the bank but will still sound decent when you get better, gretcsh catalina clubs are good as well. to be honest any kit will sound pretty good if you have decent heads and they're tuned well, i use evans g2's on the batter side (the side you hit), and uncoated emporers on the resonator side. when your starting tuning well can be difficult, look up some tutorials on the internet, maybe invest in a tension watch.
as far as cymbals two crash's a ride and hi hats are pretty standard, i go with paiste or zildjian, but thats all preferance. DO NOT BUY BRASS CYMBALS, bronze is much better sounding.
