Not sure if it helps, but I've read the Shure SM57 is a great mic for instruments, while the SM58 is superb for vocals at their price range. Roughly $200 each if I'm not mistaken.
Okay, thanks. But the first thing I'm looking for is a full set for my drums.
Maybe you'd want to consider these?

What about a drum kit? Or a nice guitar? But it looks like you'll need some more room though...
I'm not too interested in learning gutiar. It's easy enough to replicate on bass, and I prefer the sound of chords on other instruments, or spread out, rather than on guitar. It's also quite easy to find a guitarist
I've got a bunch of actual instruments (I can saxophone and clarinet at a professional jazz level, for example, and my bass and piano skills are getting there), but I'm more interested in collecting more synths atm

I'd actually recommend you get it from a company that specialises in foam for non-acoustic reasons (i.e. don't buy brand name foam). It's significantly cheaper, and it's pretty much the same stuff; as you can probably see I settled for 2" wedge cuts for most of my stuff (and 1" egg crate for my little binaural setup).
If you're looking for isolation, you can either go for fibreglass (just a warning: working with it is bad for your lungs, so definitely cover it in fabric), or neoprene (a type of foam/rubber)
