Decent

Comments:

These mallets, as the other reviewers mention, do their job. They're a decent set of mallets for learning 4-mallet marimba. But they do have their problems. Yarn isn't too durable, they're very light, they don't give you very much sound on the edges of the black bars unless you're really whaling on them. They solid produce sound throughout the marimba, so in that aspect they're very useful. Outside of that, I'd spend the extra money on Innovative Percussion or Malletech.

Good for the light player.

Comments:

I've either purchased and/or played on all of the mallets in the Vic Firth Virtuoso series, and all I can say is that these mallets are alright. If you are a player who doesn't play a ton, or doesn't put much energy into playing, then these are great inexpensive mallets for you; but if you are truly dedicated, do not buy these. They are much too light (which I guess is a personal preference), the shaft seems ready to shatter at any moment, and the yarn is not durable at all. But I do have to say, that right out of the package, they sound great.

Virtuoso Series

Comments:

These mallets are a great alternative to the really expensive mallets. They sound good, have a good feel, and the best part...they are affordable!! The downside is the obvious fact that they won't last quite as long as some other more expensive mallets. I am using them for a Michael Burritt solo currently. They would also be good for some ensemble playing.
