This entire mallet series are great mallets for general solos and some ensemble applications. They don't wear out very fast and make some great mallets for very versatile situations. Always my go to, medium softs are my favorites!

Light and Articulate Mallets

Comments:

The Van Sice mallets, are lightweight, balanced mallets. They're good for projection and articulation. The yarn the head is made of, is very similar to mallets 'non-fray' material. The handles are nice and different. I personally use "Stick rapp" on all of my mallets anyway though. Great mallets for the price!

Lovely Mallets

Comments:

I love these mallets. My only complaint is that my hands get very sweaty when playing and the glossy finish on the handles make it worse. Wish they had a birch shaft instead.

Great General Mallets

Comments:

The Van Sice series are an acquired taste. I very much like the diversity of sound that can be achieved by the degree of 'tilt' that the player can chose to enforce. These are LONG mallets, and take a bit of getting used to, but once the grip is properly accustomed to the different style these mallets speak very well in all ranges of the instrument. This particular set is fantastic for any Japanese marimba piece. I use them for Abe's 'Michi' and 'Dream of the Cherry Blossoms.' They would also be a good set of 4 for Rhythm Song or the Smadbeck Etudes.
