A good practice mallet

Comments:

The Becker Blues are my current favorite mallet to use for practicing in a practice room however for performance, I would prefer a harder mallet, such as the K10s

Ultimate Xylo Mallets

Comments:

After trying a variety of other xylo mallets, I always seem to end up coming back to these. They're perfect for most situations and playing requirements. They're lightweight, allowing for quick, agile movements on the instrument. Every player should have at least two sets of these. The tone they produce is excellent, clear and bright articulation, perfect for orchestral excerpts and solo works.

Becker blues

Comments:

These mallets sounds great on the xylophone. However, they feel awkward at first because they're a bit top heavy. But after playing them for a while, I started to get accustomed to their feel. They are useful for rags because they offer maneuverability around the keyboard.

WOW!!!

Comments:

Best xylophone mallets I've ever used. So freaking light... The rattan feels so good in your hands when playing xylophone. Pretty big heads, but not too big. They are a hard plastic head that gives a very nice sound for any solo xylophone or music where you need to project. They project, but there isn't too much ear piercing contact noise. My favorite and always my go to mallets.

Yes!

Comments:

I go to Ithaca College and everyone owns these mallets. There's no doubt as to why. Perfect for those rosewood xylos especially Bob Becker models. Only thing to be aware of is they are not the greatest for playing Porgy and Bess. Nevertheless their light weight makes them easy to quickly move around any instrument.

Glue

Comments:

They were great until I used them in a performance. Both heads came off the shaft. Good thing I had my handy dandy 30 year old Deagsn's handy. I have never had this happen. These mallets are too expensive to fail on first use.

Awesome!!

Comments:

Malletech needs to make these types of mallets more often. Nice round tone and great for solos. If you're buying your first set of xylophone mallets, you should definitely get these. Words can't describe how I feel about the them!

Son LOVES them!

Comments:

This was a purchase for my high school son. They were recommended to him, so he asked for them. When he tried them, he was impressed. They handled well, and produced a nicer sound than the old mallets he was using.

Eh.

Comments:

Good mallets but too light.... great for speed but they dont cut through and theyre pretty damnnnn short. Good mallets to have but only if accompanied by a pair of heavier stronger xylo mallets.

Great mallets! They are great for those fast runs. They work best on rosewood xylophones. I would recommend these to anyone!

The Standard Xylophone Mallet

Comments:

This Mallet has become the standard for xylophone playing. Every serious percussionist should own a pair of these mallets. They produce excellent sound quality that all conductors love. However, for me the mallets are a little too light and the handles are a little too thin, but these issues are just personal preferences and fall into the shadow of these mallets great sound quality.

Great

Comments:

These are good all-around sticks for xylophone playing that will not disappoint in any category of playing. They can fly, maybe too fast - maybe a little too light, but even so, any lick or run on the xylo is made a lot easier with these sticks. A nice clear sound with them too - loud enough to be heard in the band, but not that ear-piercing kind of sound.

Bright sound, clear articulation in all registers. VERY light in the hands; almost top-heavy. Good for solo work or ensemble.
