Unless he doesn't have a budget for a top one but just wants a reasonable job done at a reasonable cost, in essence it's not clear though and I don't the OP's responded since his initial post so looks like we're all wasting our time responding anyway !!!I may have mis-read something, but I didn't get the impression that the OP was looking to hire a drummer. "I am currently looking into some session drummers. Could you name session drummers other than the top ones?" sounds like he's simply curious about session drummers who aren't so well-known.
