A. Putnam BD10 Keith Aleo Berlioz Double Sided Bass Drum Mallets (Pair) - Product Information

The A. Putnam BD10 chamois and American felt double sided pair for bass drum is designed with Symphonie Fantastique in mind. Half of the head is sewn with an articulate and durable chamois leather and the other half with medium articulate American felt. The handle is a heavy, 90+ grams bamboo with a 7/8 inch diameter and 15 inch length.

This fast moving, staccato mallet is ideally suited for drums ranging in size from 28"- 38". A shorter, heavy handle allows the mallet to move easily for fast passages while still allowing for a dark, satisfying bass drum tone. These mallets are uniquely designed for rapid passages, but are also suitable for general playing using the softer, felted side.

The bamboo shaft handles are carefully selected for matching diameter, weight, and balance. Joints and skin are lightly sanded for smoothness, but left intact to preserve the bamboo's natural strength. A moderately heavy, glossy wood finish is applied to help protect the shaft from the environment and keep its natural moisture content from fluctuating. Made in the USA.

Lighter, more articulate version of my favorites

Comments:

These are fantastic mallets for a clean sound in chamber music, small venues, amplified show pits and smaller bass drums. I initially got them for Stravinsky's "l"Histoire" and they were perfect. They play with a lightness and balance which is close to a timpani mallet, and great for multi-setups with different stick combinations.
