Multiple Bounce Roll

The multiple bounce roll is a popular drum rudiment that can be used in a wide variety of ways. It’s probably best known for use within a marching band setting, but has been incorporated into modern drumming in a wide variety of ways. You can use it within creative drum beats, drum fills, and even solos.

The multiple bounce roll consists of consecutive and alternating multiple bounce strokes. Each stroke has an undefined number of notes that are produced by pushing the stick into the drumhead or practice pad surface, using a little bit of fulcrum pressure.
