Wei-Chen Lin serves as an Associate Professor at Yulin Normal University in China and formerly served as a percussionist with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra. This new marimba mallet series includes one bass mallet and five melodic mallets. The legato "Sky Blue" blended yarn creates an incredibly versatile mallet, capable of lush Bach chorales as well as more contemporary articulate passages. Built on rattan shafts (16¾ inches in length), the rubber cores provide a strong fundamental tone with very little contact sound. A very versatile series, the Wei-Chen Lin signature series is designed to bring the most beautiful sounds out of every marimba.
