For the sort of common but quality mid-range stuff, take a look around for Hori Real Arcade Pros (RAP) or Mad Catz Fightsticks. If you don't want to blow too much money on your first stick, I recommend the Hori Fighting Stick Mini, I used it myself for a while - it's nice as a starter to get the idea of it. If you get it, I recommend opening it up and sticking some weights inside it, it's way too light. :P
