Mike Balter Mallets

Mike Balter's passion runs deep. Through years of gained experience as a percussionist, drummer, and educator Mr. Balter noticed a lack of quality mallets on the market. Applying his experience and passion for the percussive arts Balter started producing well balanced high quality mallets that rapidly became staples in percussionist mallet bags. The continued devotion to contributing consistency and quality to the arts has earned Mike Balter the prestigious 2015 Percussive Arts Society Lifetime Achievement Award.
