Updated in 2012 this Third Edition of the highly acclaimed book Drum Tuning is an in-depth guide to tuning drums. It is written in an easy-to-read basic format that can benefit every drummer from beginner to pro. Endorsed by many pros, including Mitch Mitchell (drummer with Jimi Hendrix Experience), Kenny Aronoff, Carmine Appice and Hal Blaine. Drummers of all ages and levels can benefit by reading this book. The First Edition was written in 1988 and was a breakthrough for the drumming community since there was nothing like it at the time. Since then many people have used this information to help them understand how to get the sound they want from their own drums. Just as guitar and bass players need to learn how to tune their instruments, drummers should also learn how to tune their drums. And not just tune them, but they should learn how to get the sound they want out of them. That's what this book is all about.
