    oh ok U have your heel off the plate right and you get a double or a repeat bounce'hit? correct?

    if that is it, it is most likely your spring tension,
    also check that the front of the kick drum is lifted off the floor by the spurrs this is often overlooked by newbies.
    sry Im thinking you are a newbie with this question.

    Check the spring tension, the head tension and the angle of the beater.

    If the spring is too tight you tend to hit harder and for a longer duration which could cause "double-tap."

    Too tight of a batter head and the beater will tend to bounce. (If you are using a hard beater, try switching to the felt side.)

    Also, if the beater isn't hitting flat or flush that could rebound at an angle causing "vibration" of the entire pedal.

    Just some ideas.

    usually too much tension, check your action too, are you lifting your foot/toes , off the plate, and do you smack the beater into the head and leave it there until the next hit?

    How about slowing it down. Find out what is going on, and work through it.
