The Mike Balter Universal 185R Medium Soft-Soft Rattan Marimba Mallets are multi-tonal mallets that will work for the full range of the marimba but are more comfortable in the bottom four octaves of the marimba. Loosely wrapped wool yarn wound heads around heavy, hard cores with various underlayment’s that change timbre with the strength of your stroke. Designed to encompass the entire range of a five-octave marimba, the Universal Series delivers as much or as little impact as you will ever need. Created for the serious marimba soloist or ensemble player.

Musical Suggestion: Try these models for your Bach cello and Lute Suites. Gorgeous lush quality to the mallet while still maintaining articulation throughout the marimba.
