The guy with Newworldson is great...I think his name is Mark Rogers? I've also been pretty impressed with the guy with Spur58.

I really enjoy Pillar's drummer and the guy from the older 77's stuff (Adam Smith?). Both of them have this real nice, punchy and powerful sound.

I feel horrible for not knowing any names. Hahaha.

lol these threads crack me up. because the "best" drummer somehow always winds up being from your favorite band, right?

that said, Ted Kirkpatrick of Tourniquet has incredible skill, diversity, and technical ability. he sits at the top of my drummer list, along with Portnoy of Dream Theater and Bobby Jarzombek of all sorts of projects. but as we're mentioning Christian bands, they don't really apply.

The big, black dude that played for Mike Gungor for a few years was one of the most precise drummers I've ever seen. Not really amazing or the "best" but impressive on how exact he was.

Smile Aaron G!

Aaron Gillespie (formerly of Underoath) is the best in my mind because he's so flexible with his genre. Early Underoath was very heavy and had double bass in almost every song and he was playing as fast as he possibly could. His last 3 cd's with Underoath were a lot different than any other heavy band. Single bass drum, singing, and the occasional double bass pedal in one song. He also recorded a whole Alt-Rock cd by himself called "The Almost". He is also an incredible person. He plays acoustic guitar, he is a youth pastor, and an AWESOME speaker. I'd highly recommend checking him out in either Underoath, or if you don't like heavy music, The Almost. He's very solid well-rounded drummer and person

I love how skill in a drummer is measured by how fast he can work a double-bass pedal nowadays.

So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

I prefer to judge them by how easily they can handle alternating 7/8 and 5/8 bars and if they can do anything with a double bass other than straight 16ths or alternating hand and foot 2's/4's .

Wow, lots of folks mentioned here but never Lester Estell? He's got the fastest foot I've ever heard. YouTube a song called Get Out the Boat. Not a long song but lots of fun to listen to.
