Great mallets with a few cons

Comments:

I was looking for a pair of mallets that would make my marimba sound more xylophone-y. Pros: They certainly sound nice in the upper range Heads are durable, so are the shafts. Cons: You really have to hit the upper bars pretty hard in order to get a nice, splitting sound. The rattan is a little more bendy than I was hoping Overall, I like them other than a few cons, but I am going to end up using some Balter cord wrapped hard vibe mallets instead.

Balter

Comments:

Mike Balter created a wonderful general purpose marimba mallet with the Light Green rubber "04". I like the rattan, but the birch is fine to. ALSO: I especially like the fact that if I place an order before noon on one day, I often get the stuff delivered by the end of the very NEXT day! Steve Weiss and company are terrific! (Even though I live in southern Maryland...I consider them my "local" music store....)

Great practice mallets!

Comments:

The 04R's are great practice mallets for marimba. The description says medium but I would say they are a bit on the medium-hard side. They are nice, light, and produce a good solid tone. These mallets can also be used on woodblocks and other percussion instruments. I use these mallets 100% of the time when learning new music and practicing in the shed.
