Default Advice on first drumset

I'm looking to buy my first drum set I would like to spend around 800 CAD. I don't know much about drumsets. I like post punk revival style disco ish drums and am a big fan of Greg Saunier from Deerhoof. I also really like hardcore Japanese punk drums like this: (I moved the link to the bottom) The snare sounds almost muffled or something I can't tell if that has something to do with the recording or the drumset they are using. I also really love Mel Taylor of the Ventures, I like surf rock a lot too.

If anyone could lead me in the right direction I'de appreciate. It is hard to find many resources on drumsets as a beginner. Specific things I want to know is:

How many of these sounds I listed can I get from one drumset, is most of the sound I am hearing due to playstyle (how much variation is there between drumsets), and what do I get with spending more on a drumset.

check out your local craigslist or eBay, Reverb.com, whatever man

As for the sound in the posting, that's definitely something when they recorded, not so much the kit though it probably did play a role as he muffled it

Look for a full kit, complete with cymbals, hardware and drums and I'd say to invest in some new heads. As for muffling, try a bunch or gaffers tape
