Format: Paperback
This book was a great dissapointment. I feel ripped off, because buying such a book with CD led me expect much more indepth information and tricks from professionals than this book contains. Half of the book describes the build of a drum - everyone looking at a drum for 5 minutes learns this by himself. Then, for every drum a whole page is wasted to describe how to put the head on the shell - why? the process is similar on every drum. Exactly the same happens with the description of streching the head. No info at all is given what influences the torsion of the snare wires have on the overall sound. No mention of tuning the two heads of a drum in relation to each other. In summary, this book has no value to a drummer with an experience of 3 months or more. There are much better ressources.

Format: Paperback
This book has absolutely nothing to offer, nor does the included CD. One might expect that a companion CD could provide helpful guidance and teach a beginning drummer what to listen for when tuning a drum - it doesn't. If you already know what a snare drum, bass drum and tom sound like, don't even bother to unwrap the CD! If I could have rated this book with no stars, I would have! Please don't waste your money.

Format: Paperback
This book covers the basic tuning principles for the beginning drummer. This book is reccomended for the begginer only, who has not tuned a drumset before. The included CD isn't much help.
