Loudest Drummer

A peak reading of 109.1 decibels was recorded during a show by the French one-man show The Jerome Experience (aka drummer Jéróme Dehèdin) at the Celtic Warriors 10th Birthday Bash at Woodgreen Animal Shelter, Cambridgeshire, UK on April 12, 2003.

A peak-level sound meter was used to record Dehèdin's drumming, which peaked at a volume equivalent to a propeller plane taking off and louder than a pneumatic drill from 3 m (10 ft) away.

That's strange because I have played gigs in clubs consistantly around 110db. These are rock clubs and like it loud and proud. Even my drum solos averaged around 104db without even pumping the system. With my bands current PA, I could probably put up a number around 112db for a drum solo. Pushing the system pretty hard granted.

Man of War. A horrible band, a horrible concert. So loud I put toilet paper in my ears, covered them with my hands and had to leave. Mind you, I am in a band and I know loud-this was abu grave...

Lol a propeller plane? That's not loud

Try being around these everyday and then you'll understand what loud is about these things regularly top 150db (about the pain threshold for humans)

I'm sure that Maiden was more than 110db.

Others have been painfully loud so they must have been friggin loud.

I saw Def Leppard on their last tour. It was so loud my ears rang for 4 days. If you want to go see a LOUD band just go see Def Leppard sometime, they will blow you out of the venue
