A. Putnam BD8AA Alan Abel Bass Drum Mallet - Medium General - Product Information
BD8AA, the original Alan Abel Medium General bass drum mallet 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 Medium General 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.
