Awesome Tone & Feel!

Comments:

These are the ones! I have several mallets now that I use for my Adams 3.0 Concert Series Vibraphone, but these surpass all others for feel in the hand and how the softness delivers both amazing tone and full, rich sound. Some soft mallets are too soft and you can't get good volume from them. Others aren't soft enough and result in shrillness when they strike the tone bars with a little force. These have neither of those negative characteristics, and are the best I've tried by far!! Try them, I'm sure you'll love them.

The new Harris mallets hit the mark!

Comments:

Well, I think that Malletech has finally come up with the best version of the Albright clone mallets in all three models (soft, medium, hard). After many years of trying and purchasing hundreds of mallets I am finally 100% satisfied, which is to say a lot. I play both 2 and 4 mallets but have decided in the last year or so to devote my time to playing 2 mallets. Choosing the right mallet is a very personal experience which involves attack, tone and feel. I have tried some mallets with longer shafts that I like the sound of but, for me, the best feel is the shorter mallets with bigger heads. I have found that it is impossible to judge a mallet until it is in my hands which why I have spent thousands of dollars on mallets. What I like most about these mallets are that they immediately sounded and felt great and I knew that I did not have to go through that period of getting used to them. I have not actually played the "real deal" Albrights but I have gone through all of Stefon's previous mallets as well as many Balter variations. Bottom line is that these are perfect for me after decades of searching. I know that this sounds a little dramatic but we vibes players are sensitive people :).

Second best mallet of all time

Comments:

The Stefon Harris Albright Series are extremely versatile with beautiful playing, fast playing, and overall mallet playing. It's a little heavier and shorter than the Stefon Harris M36 made by Vic Firth years ago, but the characteristics always remained. I would recommend all the Mallets in this series!

A classic updated

Comments:

These are outstanding mallets! I have been using Albright mallets (medium soft and medium hard) for more than 25 years. Milt Jackson got me in touch with Susan Bridwell, Fred Albright's granddaughter, who continued to produce the mallets for many years, in the late 1980's and they were my only mallets ever since, until now!. Malletech recently purchased the rights to produce them and with Stefon Harris' keen sense of design these have taken a classic and brought it into the 21st Century. The balance is perfect. The weight and size of the mallet head produces a crystal clear tone the draw out the fundamentals of each note. Malletech's commitment to quality craftsmanship has made this my go to mallet from now on. I feel the same way about the Medium mallets, also purchased recently from Steve Weiss. Both are outstanding!
