    Innovative Drew Tucker

    Inspired by the sound and look of a classic vibraphone mallet, the DT1 is built for today's modern vibraphone performer. The extended length rattan shaft (15½ inches) allows the performer to look and sound like a traditional vibraphone player while performing with four mallets and a wider array of techniques. The special "Pink" blended yarn creates a warm tone with great clarity for solo and ensemble settings. The unique synthetic core provides an expressive sound throughout the entire range of the instrument. If you're looking for a traditional sound with a contemporary twist, then the DT1 Drew Tucker signature vibraphone mallet is for you.

    Innovative Wei Chen

    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.

    Innovative Dan Moore

    This mallet harkens back to the origins of the jazz vibraphone mallet. With its short rattan shaft (12 3/8 inches), the "Classic Vibe" mallet allows for a palm dampening, two-mallet technique with a classic vibraphone sound. The large synthetic core wrapped in a blended black yarn activates the bar, helping to achieve that classic sound with very little effort.
