Innovative David Friedman DF30 Rattan Vibraphone Mallets - Product Information

The David Friedman Series vibraphone and marimba mallets were designed for internationally acclaimed percussionist, composer, and educator, David Friedman. These vibraphone mallets are wrapped in a synthetic yarn and built on rattan handles. The DF30 vibraphone mallet creates a full deep tone, yet is able to speak through an ensemble without being too percussive and is great for all instrumental settings.

Great Product, But Not For Me

Comments:

I've tried a lot of different vibraphone mallets throughout my WGI, Jazz, & Undergraduate Percussion Performance studies. All that considered, this is a good line. The handle feels natural to me--it's like a lighter and slightly more flexible Mike Balter 23R. The synthetic yarn sounds and feels great. The sound produced is round, warm, and can provide a beautiful wash if you hold down the pedal. Even at louder dynamics, the sound is consistent. This is cool for mellow solo literature, but not for ensemble playing... there is no way this model would speak through a Wind or Jazz Ensemble, as advertised. Maybe if the player had a feature, but not when everyone's playing. With that in mind, I'm gonna return mine and try the more articulate model.
