Barry is on the mark. You can get a good, serviceable brush for $40-$50 or so, but I consider the best value for money in brushes to be in the $70~$130 range. These are markedly better than the <$70 brushes, and generally you don't gain much at/over the >$130 mark.

The AoS products are generally pretty good, but are generally considered to be 'over priced'.
