Double Stroke Rolls at a slow tempo?

Hi guys

I’ve been practicing my double stroke technique, at slower tempos etc 60-80BPM 16th notes. I can’t seem to play the double cleanly with the bounce or with fingers? Is it because 60-80 is pretty slow for the bounce or should I just use all fingers for the slower speeds then when I speed up start isolating the bounce more? Cheers.

At that tempo I would say wrist only. Loose hands though to get a nice tone out of the sticks when practicing on a pad.

Pillow or moongel pad. I think that would be mostly wrists at that speed, or even all wrists. as you speed up add a bit of fingers until you get to a point it will flow being mostly fingers and rebound.
