The ProMark JW5 Jim Wunderlich Hard Marimba Mallets feature a round synthetic core with brass inserts and a layer of latex wrapped in synthetic yarn. The JW5 provides maximum articulation. Finished birch handles have an ultra-smooth finish with a silky texture that feels similar to rattan but without the level of flexibility.
The JW5 is the hardest marimba mallet in the Jim Wunderlich signature series. Use this light and easily maneuverable mallet in the high register for quick, articulate or colorful passages
