A. Putnam BD7AA Alan Abel Bass Drum Mallet - Double Ended - Product Information

BD7AA, the original Alan Abel Double Ended Staccato and Ultra-Staccato bass drum model comes on a 17″ chrome plated steel handle. Designed by Philadelphia Orchestra percussionist, Alan Abel, and used for decades to create the legendary “Philly Sound,” the Double Ended Staccato mallet is a heavy weight choice for serious orchestral repertoire.

The Alan Abel signature series comes in three models: BD7AA Double Ended, BD8AA Medium General, and BD9AA Large General. All models are sewn with quality American and German style, 100% wool felts on a unique core. The handle, measuring 17″ in length × 1 1/16″ diameter, is a comfortable size for single mallet playing and will never bend out of shape. Known best for playing that “one” note, these mallets bring out low tones and pack a serious punch.

Designed and hand-crafted in the USA, using 100% American-made materials.

Comments:

It's a work of art that had the other percussionists in my community orchestra oohing and aahing. It's heavy, but that is a good thing. The conductor told me to back off on my fortissimos. LOL Nicely balanced for one handed rolls. I like the versatility of the double ended beaters, and this one's my favorite so far.
