Good, but I'm having a hard time loving them

Comments:

I've use these mallets for a while, and have a few comments on them. The first thing I noticed with these is that the head is much heavier than I expected. I've kind of gotten used to their heavier feel, but it's still awkward to do rolls an diddles with such forward-heavy mallets. That being said, these mallets do have a few merits: they produce a warm, resonant sound, which sometimes makes them sound muddy on quick, mid-range runs. They generally have a soft attack, but can get a little sharper when you ask for it. In summary, these mallets have some strong suits, but I personally am not loving them. If you buy them, keep in mind that they may be more head-heavy than you are used to.
