I want to try and get an 80s drum sound for a rock project I'm about to do some work on. I want to try and achieve the drum sound that can be heard on Def Leppard's Hysteria (thick, booming snare, heavy toms). I have read about gated reverb... will this do the trick? is there a drum plugin I should check out that will achieve this?

thanks in advance and rock on
