More versatile than expected for specialty design

Comments:

These may well be my favorite mallets now. They're different enough that I thought I should try them, and I also have a lot of respect for Kevin Bobo. But much to my surprise, in spite of how unconventional they are in shape and weight balance, they work really well across the keyboard and with different techniques and strike velocities. If one plays a dynamic passage (even if on just one note), the timbre stays consistent from soft to loud. Perhaps even more so than other mallets.

The sound of angels

Comments:

Another pair of amazing mallets by the talented Kevin Bobo. I have used and heard this mallets multiple times and I always enjoy them. The feel of the mallets is really nice and the consistency in sound is great in all dynamic levels. Combined with the other mallets from this series, you can expect a great sound for most any piece.

Brilliant!!!!!!!

Comments:

These mallets are fantastic, the KB14's are an extremely versatile mallet. They are weighted enough so that the the full volume of the marimba can be obtained with minimal effort. They take a little time to break in but once they are they sound amazing.

wrong mallets arrived?

Comments:

The mallets that arrived in the package only contained one KB14 and 3 KB11's according to the imprint on the handle. They all look and sound the same, so i'm not sure whether I have all KB11's with one wrongly imprinted handle or all KB14's with 3 wrongly imprinted handles. Either way, I should have been informed if there was a change in the manufacturing that they ran out of handles imprinted with the right markings for the ones I ordered.
