If you like maple shaft timpani mallets definitely consider giving these a try. They have a really nice balance to them and have a little more weight to them than other similar models. This helps provide really great tone and a full sound. The four different articulations will cover all your needs, if you are looking to try these to see how they are, I would get the T103 general mallets. These have enough articulation to cover most playing needs and have really nice roll sounds.

The bass drum mallet series is great for any performer or school setting. Because of the synthetic fur heads, these will stand up to a beating, and last a long time. There is not any felt to peel or away or pick at. The general mallets has a good weight to it and great sound. I would say again, these are a little heavier than some of the other manufactures out there, but definitely not the heaviest out there. The rollers also are a good size, in a pinch you can switch between rolling and general playing and still get a good sound out of them.
The sostenuto mallet has a larger head than the general mallet. This mallet has a really awesome sound when you need a low soft boom.
