ABOUT THE RUDIMENT

The thirteen stroke roll is a less common rudiment that is based around double strokes. As with the five stroke roll, seven stroke roll, nine stroke roll, and eleven stroke roll – this rudiment uses one single stroke to end the odd-number group. It’s best incorporated into drum fills and drum solo patterns.
