    Problems with hand strength

    I have a problem where on the toms or if the snare is tuned low I can't do good double strokes. The problem is I rely Solely on the rebound, how do I improve my technique where I don't really on the rebound which turns doubles into more of a drag rather than two single strokes?

    Snare for every genre

    Snare for every genre

    Snare for every genre

    I looked at every guitar center within a 1 and a half drive and the only drum I found was the supra.

    Snare for every genre
