I'm working on it too. Trap, trap, trap. Talk to Ethan Winer at Real Traps, he'll give you some suggestions. The deader the better I'm finding.
Check out the Tchad Blake forum, he will ONLY record drums in super tiny rooms that they can barely fit in (according to him) that are completely dead. He gets his verb from distortion and compression. He gets some of my favorite drum sounds ever. That gave me back my faith in small rooms for drums. This also COMPLETELY debunks the myth that you can't make a record if drums are done in a small room.
Also, reamping is great. When you have the drums done for the album or whatever, find a space you like and pump the drums through a set of monitors/pa, whatever and throw mics at the other end of the space. I get a lot of compliments on the depth of my drum sounds coming from my small ass room, and I think this has a lot to do with it.
I mic stuff close, and far. I actually use a mic about 2 or 3' in front of the kick (level with the top rim or so) and then a pair of room mics. They mostly just serve as vehicles for compression and eq, and adding a tile rm verb to if necessary.
Anyway, thats how I do it. I've been working in this overcrowded space for about 7 years now, and its a constant learning process.
