JGpercussion - Joseph Pereira Signature Series Bamboo Timpani Mallets

JGpercussion is proud to present the Joseph Pereira Signature Series of timpani mallets. Each model was created in collaboration with Joseph Pereira – Principal Timpanist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

All of the mallets in the Joseph Pereira Signature series are made from strong, hand-selected bamboo that has a perfectly sanded joint in the center of the shaft.

Mallets with a ball-stick design (JP 1-5) are hand-sewn with the highest quality soft German felt. Mallets with a European layered design (JP 6-10) feature layers of leather and German flannel.

Each pair is made from bamboo 10-11mm in diameter, and each mallet comes fitted with green mallet grips.
