Malletech

Malletech is one of the companies founded by musician, composer, educator and innovator Leigh Howard Steven. Years of experience in performance and conversations with other acclaimed performers led to the development of unique lines of mallets for keyboard instruments. Stevens acquired experience working as a design consultant for Musser Music which resulted in the development of professional keyboard instruments to be released under the Malletech flag. Today Malletech continues to innovate mallets, instruments and publish widely played compositions and educational material from Marimba Productions.
