Marimba One Katarzyna Mycka KMB2 Hard Birch Mallets - Product Information
The Katarzyna Mycka Professional Mallet Series are wrapped very tightly with all synthetic yarn. The combination of synthetic yarn and the tight wrap gives the immediate response of the bar that is required for ensemble and orchestra playing. The heavy weight of these mallets brings out the warmth of the bars by physically putting into motion the fundamental frequency of the bars.
Katarzyna recommends using this hard mallet for such pieces as Leander Kaiser's Hurricane's Eye; Ney Rosauro's Marimba concerto No. 1 (3rd Mvmt, 2nd Mvmt - right hand), No. 2 (3rd Mvmt); Andrew Thomas's Merlin (2nd Mvmt); John Thrower's Aurora borealis (1st Mvmt); Anders Koppel's Concerto No. 1 (3rd Mvmt); and Toshimitsu Tanaka's Two Movements (1st).
