i agree. he's amazing but if you're going by something like rudimental hand work for instance, Jeff Queen will blow him out of the water. No single drummer will ever be the best at everything in the world of percussionvargasdrumbeast":290t66ja said:This is another bad thread
theres is no best drummer
now a poll on whether who likes Thomas Lang and who doesnt would be better
Jo Jones could really freakin groove...Bigredfndz":1o0664yi said:Personal Opinion?
You've heard him on the radio, he's played on over 250 albums... the only thing is, his session playing is so "ordinary" and lackluster you never thought to say "DAYUM, that's some good drumming!" Because frankly, it wasn't.wak":1o0664yi said:i could not say, i have never heard him play (either solo, or as part of a band)
Same here. maybe rephrase it to "your favorite drummer" or "drummer you think is the best" but no more ".... is the best drummer ever" threadszen_drummer":1hdf0owj said:I'm kind of getting tired of the "best drummer" threads, is anybody else with me on that?

I don't think many people saw me post this, so I'm pasting it from the suggestions thread in "Off Topic":
"And for the rules, please FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, put it in the rules and outlaw the asking of "What's the best...(insert product here)". I'm really sick and tired of seeing that question seemingly on every damn drum and cymbal thread here. It's lame, overused, and completely irrelavant. It's a n0ob question, and while I don't mind helping people who are new to drumming, this is getting out of freaking hand. "
Last time I'm saying it: THERE IS NO BEST. IT'S ALL YOUR OPINION. So quit being a f*cking dumb-ass and don't ask the damned question anymore!!! Jesus Christ on a Skateboard.

I'll begin alphabetically, but will give that up soon due to the large number of drums out there. And please understand, I am listing only a small sample.
Agidigbo. (melodic percussion instrument)
Clay pot drums.
Drum kit, USA.
Repique De Mao.
Orchestral snare drum.
