Hal Leonard has Released The Drum Recording Handbook by Bobby Owsinski and Dennis Moody.
"The Drum Recording Handbook uncovers the secrets of amazing drum sounds that you can record yourself, even with inexpensive gear," according to the publisher.
Before even setting up a microphone, the authors tackle the ins and outs of drum construction and tuning and give you advice on what to do to make the kit sound better. Mic-ing techniques, room treatments, and the best ways to avoid phase cancellation are addressed. The book also includes interviews with Bernie Dresel, Johnny Hernandez, Ricky Lawson, Brian MacLeod, and Dave Weckl, who offer expert session advice.
The Drum Recording Handbook includes an instructional DVD with tips on mic placement for every piece of the kit as well as a tutorial on proper mixing techniques and an interview on tuning with Mike White, one of Los Angeles's top session drummers.
