FASTEST DRUMMER

The ultimate test of a drummer's speed!
Test your drumming skills with both the Single Stroke Roll and the Buzz Roll.

For the Fastest Drummer competition, we use the patented “Drumometer” that measures drum strokes over 60 seconds. This is the same device used by Guinness Book of World Records to measure the World’s Fastest Drummer!

For the single stroke portion of the competition, results will be reviewed via Hi-Def Camera to ensure that the there were no bounces, presses or buzz.
