Vibe Mallets

Comments:

They are fine mallets, but just harder than I expected. They don't work for me now since I am largely practicing at home and not currently playing with an ensemble.

Very good mallets, but not quite right for me

Comments:

Someone recommended these mallets to me, and they are very nice, light, and very suitable for fast playing. For me, the sound was a little too bright, with a little too much bite. I like the length of the handles - not too long, not too short. These mallets would be great for vibraphonists who play with very loud bands, and they will really cut through and be heard. I exchanged them for a different Joe Locke model - the Deep Tone model (49R), and I find these much more suitable for my playing. Compared to the Joe Locke Crossovers, the Deep Tone mallets are a little softer, with a more round sound. But they still have enough bite and attack for me. Very satisfied with these. My band is sort of a chamber jazz group with cello, clarinet, violin and other orchestral instruments, so the warmer tone of the Joe Locke Deep Tones is just right.

Locke Crossover mallets

Comments:

I really liked these mallets. They are an excellent all purpose choice. They cut and articulate well, but not I did find them a little lighter than I like and shorter in the shaft. I didn't have the opportunity to try the other two Locke models.

Locke Crossover

Comments:

I'm very satisfied with these mallets. They have a bigger head than I'm used to but the full warm sound is just what I was looking for.
