Through permission from the WFD, Davis created the double stroke category to teach how to play a clean, open roll, as well as various accuracy demonstrations with rudiments from all four sticking families.

Davis was ineligible to compete in any NAMM WFD finals for single strokes because of becoming a world champion first.

Seth was the first person in history to officially play a clean, open, double stroke roll over the 1000, 1100 and 1200 beats per minute mark.

All rankings and records were executed at a stick height of 10-12 inches, with marching sticks. – Certified by the World’s Fastest Drummer Org.
