Great General Mallets

Comments:

The Van Sice series are an acquired taste. I very much like the diversity of sound that can be achieved by the degree of 'tilt' that the player can chose to enforce. These are LONG mallets, and take a bit of getting used to, but once the grip is properly accustomed to the different style these mallets speak very well in all ranges of the instrument. This particular set is fantastic for any Japanese marimba piece. I use them for Abe's 'Michi' and 'Dream of the Cherry Blossoms.' They would also be a good set of 4 for Rhythm Song or the Smadbeck Etudes.

Eh..

Comments:

These were the first mallets i began using when I learned the stevens grip. These are much harder than the simple "Medium" in the description. It sounds clanky in the lower registers and awkward in the high registers. I bought the softer 111's which are pretty good as well. I think I'm soon going to make the switch to the Nancy Zeltsmans, they sounds really great and feel much better. If possible, try your mallets out before purchasing them. It's an expensive mistake if you don't like the mallets.
