Incredible clarity

Comments:

These mallets have great clarity. The brass weight really does pull a beautiful tone from glockenspiel bars. However, beware, as the phenolic mallets are quite hard. These are perfect for all but the most delicate writing, emulating a kind of keyboard glockenspiel sound in the attack. Due to the hard, smaller heads, these sticks are likewise not so well suited to producing loud and rich sounds. Going back to the keyboard glockenspiel sound, if you like an articulate mallet in works like La Mer (I find they work for all but the very opening and ending of the 2nd movement - just my personal opinion, though), these really bring that colour out so well.
