I’m a beginner… where do I start?

I’m looking to get some basic picks.

I’m looking for a set suitable for opening all pin and tumbler locks, through raking or SPP.

I’ll mostly be doing padlocks and door locks.

Can you recommend a product at or under $50?

That’s an easy one, if you’re not sure where to start the PickPals Intro Set is a great set without outlaying too much money. Very popular and a great start to your set, you can expand from here.

However, if you want a great set, the Southord Nine Piece Slim Line Lockpick Set is my pick. I have the 22 Piece Slim Line of this set. These are great picks with metal handles and provide great feedback.
