Mike Balter 325B Titanium Medium Soft Vibraphone/Marimba Mallets (Birch)
Regular priceSale price
Mike Balter Titanium Series Vibraphone/Marimba Mallets are made to last, constructed from an incredibly durable yarn that can withstand years and years of playing. They're remarkably resistant to water damage as well, making them excellent for front ensembles.
These mallets are designed to get a full characteristic sound out of both the marimba and vibraphone with a minimum of contact noise, which is great if you're playing music that demands quick transitions from one instrument to another - or if you have a limited mallet budget.
Strong, rigid birch shafts are often preferred by players who use the Musser/Stevens grip, providing less flex for more accuracy.
The heads on these mallets are heavy, allowing you to get the most possible sound out of the bars with very little effort. The medium soft 325 models have a smidge more bite than the softest model, allowing them to reach a bit further up towards the upper-middle range of the keyboard without suffering.
