You're over thinking it.How can a drum style be snobby? It’s just a vocabulary and knowing how a tune works.
Jazz drummers are typically more studied because the vocabulary is so large it requires a lot of learning and time and technique.
Each drummer has their own personality but most drummers I know are quite humble. Take Dan Weiss and Ari Hoenig who are insanely amazing but are definitely not snobby. At all.
This is all pertaining to real jazz drummers. Not instagram personalities/brands that have never been on a jazz record.
Even the skinny little sticks jazz drummers use are snobby.
