hey guys, i dont really know who the fastest bouble kick player is, but really do u have to be fast there is alot more to double kick than just kicking 16ths all the time. i personally think that 16ths are good but it is the easy way out, if u can think of a good bass riff u just go with double kick, think more and come up with a kick ass bass line do do with ur double kick. dont take the easy way out.

dude, he wasn't trying to be creative, it was a clinic and he was obviously demonstrating double bass technique. His drumming on the new Nile record is awesome.

Fastest, Tim Waterson, 1,407 strokes in 60 seconds.

I have never heard Mr. Waterson play however in a musical situation. Derek Roddy takes a lot of it very well in musical situations. I'm not sure what you can do with double bass over 300 bpm, hahaha!

Tiger Bill has some of the fastest feet, just watch his videos on DRUM!

And he doesnt need to focus on it like those speed metal guys, yet is faster

This thread has been here a long time, so what the hell i guess i will join it for fun...The name of the thread is "Fastest Double Bass Player"...Now if the thread had been named "Most musical drummer" I could understand it going on for so long, with tons and tons of drummers names thrown out there...However this thread is about "speed", which is something that can be measured...The FASTEST DBL BASS player in the world is Tim Waterson...NOBODY has been recorded doing anything with greater speed than Tim...

Totally agree with you! Double bass doesn't have to be constant some of the best double bass players are more concerned with technique over speed i mean look at Joe Franco he has excellent technique with his feet.

How about Charli Benante, I recall reading somewhere that in recording sessions his double bass play would be so fast that the recording would come out as one single long sounding hit instead of loads of double bass hits. He is also extremely fast live.

Jörg Michael from Stratovarius is pretty much the fastest double bass player ive heard. i strongly recommend listening to a song called Holy Solos live verison. About 7:40 mins into the song it blows your mind. All of their songs are awesome.

The world record holder for fastest double bass playing is Tim Waterson, 1407 beats in 1 minute. Beat that!!! But for drummers who really play fast music, I have to go with Hellhammer (Dimmu Borgir, Mayhem, Kovenant, Arcturus ... )

The fastest record for double bass is Tim Waterson, I'm not sure of the exact number but it was very high, around 255-265bpm. The bpm thing people are talking about, what it is that alot of people who are into metal drumming say for example 215bpm. They mean 16th notes at 215 bpm. The fastest double bass in a musical context that I am aware of is for George Kolias of Nile that has a song with 16th notes at 264bpm. Derek Roddy of Hate Eternal has some songs that are 16th notes at 250+bpm.

For someone to be able to play 16th notes at 300bpm the ankle or leg( whichever the player uses) would have to change direction something like .0175 seconds. I believe that is the correct number, there was a debate on another forum about this that had all the math. That is insane how fast the human body would have to change. I'll try to find it.

IMHO.....PETE IS WAY TO GOOD FOR M.A. anyways.
watch out for George Kollias NILES New drummer most of their NEW material is 260 bpm.

Hi Tim, it's Tommy. I hate to tell you and I have seen thousands of WFD releated threads especially fastest feet and the absolutely worst 'bubble burster' is to see the name TIM WATERSON. haha!

Dude, we know each other, but come on, you have held the two top WFD World Records for like 5 years in a row. right? Insane!

There's tons of metal threads and I have even edited clips for some of these sites and they have been betting on all these metal guys for years that were going to knock you off. Where are they? First before you answer let me say 1030 single strokes in 60 seconds is not a monkey in training. Try 1/16ths at 200 and I think you are at 800 which is pretty close to 'DogBoots' by Virgil. right?

Are you going out to do the WFD at NAMM, if so what can we expect? I know you are not eligible to compete for the $12,000 in prizes, but also what hot young gun with the feet can we expect to come out of this WFD?

How about Thomas Lang? What's up with that?

I've seen Thomas Lang is he's gotta be one of the quickest double bass players without a doubt. Also technique wise, he's amazing. An upcoming drummer that's pretty sick too is Benny Greb.

Yeah! Hellhammer(real name Jan Axel Von Bloomberg) are the fastest metal drummer alive today, no one is like him, trust me... I am a professional drummer, and i know what i say, Hellhammer are unique, because first, he's a jazz-drummer... Who agree whit me?

For DamageInc, Hellhammer is more more faster than Reno, in fact, Dimmu Borgir have chosen Hellhammer... Listen to Stormblast Re-Mastered... I have Emperial Live Ceremony, and Trym Torson it's a normal black metal drummer, nothing special... Hellhammer is unreachable, remember this...

sorry to bring back an old thread, but Kevin Talley has to be the second fastest double bass drummer ever. Listen to the song Everything You Love off of Chimaira's self titled album. Incredible double bass speed around one minute into the song.

George Kollias of Nile has a bit of pace behind when it comes to feet.

Chris Adler may not be the fastest but his got some of the most technical bass drumming ive heard in a while
