Modern Drummer is the oldest magazine (still being published) devoted to the subject of drumming and percussion. Published independently by Modern Drummer Publications Inc., the magazine put out its first issue in 1978. The magazine is published monthly and each issue presents interviews with notable players as well as articles on technique and equipment reviews.
Each year Modern Drummer publishes its annual reader poll of the year's best performers in a variety of categories, such as jazz, funk, rock and Latin. This poll is widely regarded as the most significant form of recognition within the drumming/percussion community.
