Nice Mallets

Comments:

I have two pairs of the JG/Herbert mallets, and two pairs of Herbert mallets I bought in NYC about 20 years ago. The older mallets have a much better construction with some added details: end caps, cleaner stitching, etc. I use them all. Well balanced weight and comfortable to use. Very good with the smaller orchestra and brass group gigs I do in Duke University Chapel. I will say that the shafts, when clicked together, emit a clave-like sound that can be a little troublesome when you are trying to pick them up during a quiet passage. Caution advised, or else muffle them by wrapping some tape around the base.

DH3's - Great but...

Comments:

I love these mallets. I also have the DH1's and both pairs have served me very well in both wind ensemble and orchestra. However, something broke within the shafts of both pairs, and rattles every time I use them, and now I can't use them. They are wonderful, I just wish I could afford new pairs.

Carbon Fiber Timpani Mallets

Comments:

Even though these were quite high priced I bought them because I had heard that carbon fiber was well balanced and produced good tone. I found both of those statements to be true. They are light, lighter than hardwood or bamboo and are very responsive. Roll is easy up to Forte but beyond that they don't have enough heft to sustain beyond Forte rolls. Overall good product.

DH3 mallets

Comments:

The light,carbon fiber handles give them great action, as I expected. I would probably want a slightly softer mallet for extensive prolonged rolls on the larger drums, but these produce superior sound on an older, damaged and repaired head of a timpani I am compelled to use at one of my playing venues.

Great

Comments:

First I will start with the con. WAY TOO PRICEY. These mallets are great and can cover any articulate timpani passages but also cover more delicate sections. I would easily pay up to 55 but 75 is a little high for these.

Great all around mallet.

Comments:

I really like these mallets. I use these quite a bit in both Wind Ensemble and Orchestral playing. They have replaced my Duff 3's as my "Go To" mallet. I have been reccomending this mallet to some of the younger players in my studio. Everyone Loves Them!
