Buying this book will save you money in the long term. There is little point in buying a lot of equipment and not knowing what to do with it. You are best off buying fewer, higher-quality items and maximising their potential. Studying sound engineering will help you with this.

Getting a good room sound is the key, many of the great drum sounds/recordings were achieved with a couple of mics. Its down to the playing, nice sounding kit, nice sounding room, good player, a couple of decent well placed mics and you will get a good drum sound.

If your room sucks you can put up some panels here and there try and flatten out the modes a bit, its hard tho, your better off finding a good room and using it.
