Do what he said and make sure you have good skins before you even waste your time trying to get a good sound. Some clear remo's will do the trick. Tap the skin with your stick beside each tuning peg and make sure it rings out the same note all the way around the drum.

When you put a blanket in the bass drum you should usually keep it against the batter head as much as possible or it'll still sound stupid like a huge tom.

Duct tape with kleenex under it taped to each drum will also stop ringing but it doesnt look great.
