They sound great but...

Comments:

These mallets sound amazing, they are definitely a must have for any xylophonist (I personally use them for rags). My one complaint is that they're too light.

Solid mallets!

Comments:

Finally bought my first pair of xylo mallets in college, very nice choice. Sounds good in a very wide range, nice balance and feel. Not too bright but still got a little zing to them. Would recommend for anyone starting to build their mallet collection :)

Great mallets overall

Comments:

These mallets are great and I would buy them again. The only thing that may throw some people off is that the mallet shaft is slimmer compared to other mallets such as the Ip902.

Where Have You Been All My Life?

Comments:

I really wish I knew about these mallets long ago! It might seem weird to attribute a pair of mallets to being a better player, but this is what I'm experiencing with these mallets. I'm hitting the notes better and my playing feels more nimble. This is especially great and conducive to going through the George Hamilton Green book. My hands don't get as tired and I'm also noticing the shock absorption of the rattan handles. This is especially noticeable when I switch to a birch-handled mallet and compare. When I play with birch, my hands have to work twice as hard. This is really a testament to choosing the right mallet for the job and let the mallet do the work. The attack is kind of sharp for my practice room but I wear headphones for my metronome so they sound great with the headphones. I don't mind the skinnier shaft, but I gave pretty small hands. I wish they made a softer attack ball with the same handle for practice. It seems like the other mallets in the BB series have thicker handles. I think I'm going to also try Innovative OS1 to swap out between the BB34s. I love the BB34s, though, and will never give them up!
