Dragonfly Percussion 1" Ebonite Xylophone / Glock Mallets - Rattan - Product Information

The Dragonfly Percussion EB1 mallets feature a 1" ebonite ball and are light and agile, but never shrill. Perfect for the soft excerpts in Exotic Birds on xylo and Sleeping Beauty on glock. Rattan handles.

Ebonite is a hard, extruded natural rubber material. On xylophone, the hand-turned Ebonite sticks produce a pure and articulate sound, suitable for lots of general playing, but with an underlying warmth not found in phenolic and exotic hardwood sticks. While they are relatively light-weight, they produce a surprisingly full-bodied sound with an exceptional spread of high and low overtones. They have terrific resilience off the bar resulting in a very comfortable feel in the hand. On glock, the Ebonite produces a very warm, elegant sound with a clear attack. Extremely useful for a wide range of playing on glock, especially where blend and warmth are needed without losing clarity.

Awesome for Soft Celeste Sound

Comments:

These are great mallets for soft celeste-like excerpts. Would recommend on Waldweben, first bit of La Mer II, La Mer III, and possibly Sleeping Beauty. No tick in the sound, very warm tone, and a soft attack. The rattan is medium circumference, slightly larger than Becker blues. Not very heavy, great mallets.
