Re: Which to choose

The thing is I have no plans to trigger. So I don't know if working the heel heel toe toe is worth it if one cant get power and consistency with it.

The swivel

I've been messing around with the swivel technique for double bass. So far it feels good but I have heard that it can be hard on the knees over time. Anyone have knee problems with this technique?

Wood vs Metal

Snare drums that is. Let's take the same size snare, 13x6.5. Maple vs different metals. And birch vs different metals.
