Vic Firth Andrew Markworth Hard Marimba Mallets - Product Information

The Vic Firth M232 Andrew Markworth Signature marimba mallet is a hard mallet that is articulate and bold with great tone.

As an instructor, arranger, composer and show designer, Andrew Markworth burst onto the marching percussion scene at a very young age! His talents have been showcased with some of the very best ensembles within the DCI, WGI and BOA arenas. Most recently, his design and instruction helped propel the Carolina Crown Drum and Bugle Corps to a silver-medal finish at the 2009 DCI World Championships.

The new Andrew Markworth Signature Series features 6 models-3 designed for marimba and 3 for vibraphone. The marimba mallets feature long birch shafts (11/32" diameter) which increase the articulation and sound projection. The mallets are wrapped in 100% synthetic yarn and double-stitching provide maximum durability and weather resistance. The vibe mallets feature thick rattan shafts and are also wrapped in 100% synthetic yarn, providing added warmth to the sound with maximum durability and weather resistance.

Amazing sound and articulation!

Comments:

These were introduced to us during our indoor show of my Junior year in High School. Someone that had only really used multi app 183-184's, and occasionally some soft, warm sounding 70's, the transition was quite tough. These mallet really can whip your hands into shape and, in less than a month or two, they were second nature to use with almost no trouble. If your ensemble is looking for a nicely weighted mallet that can produce a very warm sounds that is also very articulate, I would recommend these, they are a great series of indoor/outdoor mallet.

Vic Firth Andrew Markworth Hard Marimba Mallets

Comments:

At my school percussion ensemble, the director treats mallets and equipment as personal. The mallets given to me are mine. The mallets that were given to me are: 2 pair 230 2 pair 231 2 pair 232 2 pair 180 2 pair 181 2 pair 182 2 pair 183 2 pair 184 Out of these mallets the 232 and 183 are my favorite. I have used all the multi apps before, but never the Markworth's. These are amazing. Great fundamental tone, great attack, great weight and thickness of shaft. Highly recommended.
