    The vengeance packs is a great sample pack not just only for drums. Perfect to start of with, all my drum samples comes from there ^^

    Edit: great sample packS, there are essential and house ones that I know of

    I rate the Industrial Strength ones from loopmasters pretty highly.......some good single hits and stuff aswell as loops if you just want to get something down quickly.
    Drum & Bass Tip Trixxx Vol 2 has some tasty bits aswell, the hi freq hits are real nice for filling the sound of a break.

    IMO the vengance packs are pretty shit, i only ever used the kicks from them, now i don't even use them anymore. I tend to use more 'real' samples these days.

    Cabbies loopmasters samplepack is brilliant if you want your drums to go for that seriously thumping punchy midrange grit

    There's a really good snare hit in the free demo of Jungle Drum Kits vol. 2 futureloops.com/product-jungledrumkitsvol2.php called FL_JungleDK2_Namdapha_Snare3 (it's the last snare in the demo).

    You have to sign up for a free account at futureloops.com to get a download link but it's absolutely free.

    That's obviously a tight, jungle snare sound but I also like the first snare in DnB Rough Connections Vol. 4 bhksamples.com/shop/rough-connections-vol-4/ called RC4_Snare (1) (it's the very first snare in the pack). It's a really nice dance floor smash type snare. Sounds really crisp and punchy.

    Best.

    EDIT: I'm about to get KJ Sawka sample pack hoping to get some really live sounding hits and clean, classic loops. loopmasters.com/product/details/208

    Deadmau5 XFer pack, Danny Byrd packs, Vengeance house packs.. Ableton has some pretty nice stock .wav files, and process of layer, eqing and compression can make drums better. :p
