Tim Genis Rite of Spring Timpani Mallets - Product Information

"I normally never agree with naming a mallet after a specific piece for the simple reason of not wanting to "pigeon hole" a mallet to one piece, but with this pair, I couldn't resist. This mallet really is perfect for the Rite of Spring, especially the Danse Sacrale at the end. It is quite a bit heavier than the others, has a thicker Tonkin shaft and uses felt that is very hard but easy to split. The best description of this mallet came from a colleague when I was playing the Main Title to Star Wars. He told me, " Those are the warmest, hard mallets, I've ever heard." They are not meant to play fast passages, but instead, are meant to get a big fat sound while still being a hard mallet." - Tim Genis
