You can get a fairly cheap set to see how you like Bamboo off Ebay. That is where I got my first set just to see if I liked working with them, if you do then you can invest in a better set. I personally like the Carbonized Bamboo and I dont order mine from China. Mine came from the USA. Most of them you can get with free shipping.
I love the circ's better than the dpn's I just use my dpn's when I do cables. Good luck!
