Marimba One Double Helix DHB3 Medium Hard Birch Mallets - Product Information

The Double Helix Series was developed to bring out the warmth of the fundamental throughout the range of the 5-octave marimba. The relaxed yarn tension on these mallets enhances the smooth, dark attack of the mallet.

The exclusive patent pending “double helix wrap” technique allows you to easily identify each mallet in the series. Two strands of yarn are wrapped independently of each other, creating a woven effect. After one of the strands makes a revolution around the mallet head, the other strand makes a revolution, securing the previous strand. This locks the yarn in place and prevents it from unraveling. This unique method of wrapping provides our mallets with their distinct look, and exceptional sound.

Wonderful mallets

Comments:

These are incredible mallets. A bit heavy, but feel excellent when used in Stevens technique, and have a wonderful feel on the marimba. Worth every cent, especially when you catch a sale. These have a deep, warm tone that sounds amazing in all registers of a 4.3 octave marimba, though they are medium-hard. Medium would likely be too soft for the upper register, so for general use, these are the mallets to go with. They also look spectacular, with the colorful, yet subtle multiple yarn wrap and the etched birch shafts. I love them.

Excellent product!

Comments:

These mallets are great for any musician ready to take steps further into a musical world. Great sound, excellent quality, birch handles are tough and sturdy, mallet heads beautifully woven for a great blending sound. These are a small audible difference than the mediums; the attack is a little louder. Definitely a little higher-range friendly. I recommend these and all of the Double Helix mallets for any marimba player.

Good mallets

Comments:

These mallets are great for intermediate players. They tend to be too light to play well in the lower octaves (below F2) and a little soft in the higher range (above F4). But, everything in between is consistent and easily articulated.
