Comments:

These are the mallets I wish I had been using years ago. I use the 12's for 4 mallets things and I also have a pair of 16's for 2 mallet parts. If you are new to Malletech marimba mallets these are a great place to start.

Wonderful general mallets

Comments:

If you don't mind a bit of extra weight, and are looking for a general mallet that will sound quite good in all registers except the top octave, these are the mallets for you. The additional heft provides you with full, rich tone quality that is needed to make the most of the best rosewood instruments. These have just enough cut to sing through the mid range, but also work quite well even in extended passages in the bottom octave of a 5 oct. instrument. My only complaint would be that they begin to wear out, as most mallets with multi-tonal qualities do, rather quickly. I have had my current set for about a month, and use them at most an hour daily. Thus far, they have hardened up a little bit and cut a tad more than they used to. I have found that these mallets provide just the right sound for many of Sammut's works.

Comments:

The ES12 is wonderful medium hardness mallet for players seeking a heavier mallet with little contact/attack noise. The moderate weight and balance of this mallet generate a warm fundamental and rich, full-bodied tone. If not the heaviest mallet in the Malletech Signature Series, the ES12 is slightly heavier than the Stout GS13s and substantially heavier than the Stevens series.
