Get the Tornado 2s Instead

Comments:

These are great mallets and they are well made, however, the Tornado 2 mallets (with the inverted heads) produce a MUCH better sound. The contact angle with the these mallets prevents most of the energy from going into the chime bars (especially when you reach for the upper manual). I ended up exchanging these mallets for the Tornado 2s, which sound so much better! I LOVE these chime mallets; they feel and sound GREAT, but do yourself a favor and order the Tornado 2s

LIke playing any other keyboard instrument!

Comments:

I got a pair of these at PASIC and I love them! I got to use them to perform Hazo's Ride and they're great for the more percussive sections, and we are using them for Ionisation as well. I think my only problem with them is that they lack the fullness of a chime hammer, and there needs to be a softer option.

Good idea, bad sound

Comments:

I have a set of these at the school I teach at, and I am impressed with their construction and the concept, but they do not produce as full of a sound as a traditional rawhide mallet. They may be good for very fast passages, but for the vast majority of chime parts a hammer, particularly a rawhide hammer sounds better.

FANTASTIC!

Comments:

Tried these out at PASIC in Indy 2011 and had to get a pair. I have been using them in concert band and choir at the college I attend, and absolutely love these! Super versatile, durable, and sound most importantly, they sound great.

Lifesaving sticks

Comments:

A must for contemporary music, they let you play really fiddly passages as easy as you would on xylophone. The larger ones especially sound pretty close to using a normal tubular bell hammer.
