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.
