      Musicroom Reviews

      Out of all the books I have purchased from Musicroom this, and I have purchased many over the years, is most definitely the worst ever. It's a beginners book and not a good one at that. A lot of basic pictures, but very little technical content and a high price to pay at £22.95. 33 pages totally wasted on interviews with drummers, I haven't bothered to watch the DVD, in fact I have not removed it from it's packet at the end of the book. The title "The Drum Recording Handbook" is definitely a very misleading title. It will go on the highest bookshelf and left to gather dust. These comments are by no means a slur on Musicroom themselves, as I said earlier I have been purchasing tuition books from them for many years, in the main for drums. Sorry, thumbs down to this one.
