Ron Vaughn Petite Birch Xylophone Mallets - Product Information

The XYLOM-9B's are as reliable a Xylophone mallet as can be found. Trusted by performers of all kinds for many years, these mallets deliver brilliant sound presence on both natural and synthetic Xylophone keyboards.

The weight and balance of the XyloM-9 mallets provides ideal balance for all kinds of high spirited, bright and lively Xylophone parts. These mallets have been used in everything including George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, An American In Paris, Aaron Copeland compositions, Loony Tunes sound tracks and music scores of all kinds.

The XYLOM-9B's are designed for fast speaking, articulate performances. Ron Vaughn Xylophone mallets provide a bright, crisp keyboard attack, enhancing the naturally brilliant sound of many Xylophone keyboards. Mallet heads are complete brass-core design to deliver the balance most players seek for this quick-speaking, tonally bright instrument. Four and Six mallet sets are easy to assembly from the well matched, hand-picked shafts.

Performance Tip: XYLOM-9B's are ideal for four mallet parts where bright articulation of all four voices is required. They also double well for bell parts when mallet change-time is limited. Multiple Percussion pieces are full of opportunities for these time-tested, hand matched mallets.

Great articulate sound, but had an assembly issue

Comments:

These mallets work great for Gershwin's "American in Paris." The sound is very crisp and the shape of the mallet aids the production of soft dynamics and rhythmically fast passages. My only gripe with the product is that the mallet heads easily broke off within the first hour of using them. However, with a little bit of super glue on the top of the shaft, the heads were secured back on; since then, there hasn't been an issue.
