New Rubber Xylo and Bell Mallets

Designed for indoor, out-door, or concert settings. The shape of the mallet head is designed for optimum sound throughout the overtone series.All feature Rattan Handles.

 

VM-R1

The soft creates a warm sound that is great for ambiance or soft passages in the music. A great mallet to use in legato passages, allowing the mallets to blend with the rest of the ensemble. It allows the tone of the instrument to speak without being lost. It is a great way to add the sound without the strong attack.


VM-R2 

The medium mallet creates a full sound and is a great blend of attack and tone. The length of the mallet allows you to have the versatility to choke up or to hold the mallets further back for more leverage 

 VM-R3

The hard mallets offer a clear and full sound with strong attack to the instrument without the sound sticking out of the blend of the ensemble.

 

 

Multi Tenor Mallet: MV-T2XL

MV-T2XL

Large 1 ½" lexan disk. The larger hard disk allows the mallet to rebound from drum head to drum head quickly without contacting the rims. Great for articulating scrapes, sweeps and windmills.
