Malletech Michael Burritt MB13 Medium to Medium Hard Birch Marimba Mallets - Product Information

Multi-toned: medium to medium hard with red label.

Provides a full sound in all the registers and rolls well at medium dynamic levels. This is a great general mallet for those players who want the sound of a rubber core and a bit of bite to the attack.

Mike is internationally respected as a marimba virtuoso, composer and teacher. The six models of the Michael Burritt Series are built around 1 1/8″ diameter natural rubber cores. All of the models also have one or more additional layers of latex rubber on top of the natural rubber for a more complex multi-toned response pattern. All models are wrapped and stitched with a synthetic blend that has good durability. The yarn has also been designed to have just a touch of contact “chiff” for the extra cutting power Michael requires. All models feature selected birch shafts.

Great For Two Mallet

Comments:

First off, this mallet is weighted perfectly. It has a little towards the head to add velocity to your stroke, which comes in handy on those fast two mallet passages. I've been playing on them for about a week or two now and yet to see any signs of it wearing down, so I can tell these will last. Great purchase in my opinion.

Great!

Comments:

They still have the same lush, warm tone and balance I expected from playing with MB13s. They are, however, a medium to medium hard multi-tonal mallet and thus are expected to provide a slightly different sound and more contact noise. I love MB13s but I would gravitate towards buying the MB8s first as they fill more of a general niche. I have begun playing different types of solo repertoire with MB8s in mallets 123 and one MB13 in mallet 4 and have been enjoying it.

Legit

Comments:

Pretty versatile functionally, but tonally have a very small range of dynamics that aren't medium-hard. After I broke them in, they sounded pretty rockin'.

I am unable to rate them properly as they were a gift for my grandson, but he was very pleased to receive them.

Slight "bite", more noticable on lower registers. Good "general" mallet all over the board. These mallets will pay for themselves.
