heel/toe, or moeller technique is the best. transformed my playing - foot and hand technique. makes playing sooooo easy too.
Pete Riley demonstrates a simple slide technique to pull off a double, its not heel/toe. He doesn't use the words "Heel/toe", he's not claiming its heel/toe, b/c its not. A lot of people confuse this stroke with heel/toe. This stroke has limitations due to the fact in it there's a place in it where you lose contact with the foot board while having to change direction at the same time, this creates a demand for balance. Pete uses his right foot to balance, and maintain his stability.
Yes. I have 2 already, looking for a third (and then maybe some singles - to accompany my other double-bass kit).I've got some tama speed cobras double pedals for sale, would anyone be interested?
I found that video a few months ago - impressive! He got that technique up to a stunning level of speed, control and sonic evenness. Seems there are quite few people who can do this.
I'm a literal heel-toe convert, like i actually do the entire foot on pedal and heel drop etc... Any advice for beater distance ? I tend to set mine about 4-5 inches with full spring tension on a Pearl Demon drive. Any endurance exercises ? not sure if its the new set full tension and pushing max 260bpm really burns out my stamina, I noticed i don't last as long as i used to on lower tension. Any advice would be fantastic
I play the slide technique, and what I've just learned is that in order for it to work, the foot must slide. The sole of the human foot has a good grip, try wearing some socks or footwear that has less friction.
Hopefully this theory can be applied to the heel toe technique.
And don't expect to grasp it overnight. Some drummers take weeks, others may take years. Just do a few minutes practicing this each day, and start slow. Eventually your muscle will memorize your movements and it will all feel natural.
Just my 2 cents.
