Vic Firth Robert Van Sice Keyboard Mallet - Soft - Product Information

The new Robert van Sice Signature Keyboard mallets from Vic Firth feature a heavy synthetic core that produces a very robust and complete sound. These yarn wound marimba mallets have been crafted with an exclusive hand-wrapping technique that virtually eliminates the sound of bar contact. A special interlocking stitch pattern maintains the integrity of the head. The maple handles are 17" long and provide an excellent feel and control. With a full depth of sound and excellent versatility of color, these mallets are the perfect choice for music from Japanese repertoire and pieces demanding multiple layers of timbre.

The M122 is a soft mallet ideal for pieces such as the Bach Cello Suites.

Comments:

These are my first real soft mallets and I am really pleased with them. The design and wrap is really cool and very durable. The sound is very pleasant and warm and the mallets speak very well through out the entire range of a 5 octave marimba. At soft volumes, it gives presence and warmth to the overall sound and at higher volumes it gets to the core without being too overpowering and staying true to the sound. They are basically multi-tonal mallets because of the wrap and the core design which makes them quite versatile. The 17" shafts are nice for wide intervals and they feel really good in the hands. If you are looking for a general soft mallet with some variety, give these M124's a try.
