Marimba One Ivana Bilic IBR6 Power Bass Rattan Mallets - Product Information

The Marimba One Ivana Bilic model IBR6 Power Bass mallets combine weight, and robust and rich sound, with articulation. It is heavier and harder than the IB5, and makes the low C really ring. Well suited for legato, rolled or fast passages, it sounds particularly nice in the two lowest octaves, enhancing the fundamental with a powerful, vibrant and clear sound. Ivana recommends it as the bass mallet for a combined set, with two IB5's or IB5 + IB4 as the two inner mallets. The combination of softer mallets with IB6 as the bass mallet works very well for chords (with or without rolls) because it emphasizes the bass line, and gives to the chord the right harmonic quality.

Ivana Bilic wanted her new mallet line to emphasize the singing characteristic of the marimba, by relating the sound that each mallet makes to human vocal qualities. Her definitions for each mallet combine the ideal playing range for a mallet with the color/timbre of its sound.

These mallets are on Rattan Handles.
