The Malletech Leigh Howard Stevens LS15L Light Multi Tonal Med Soft to Hard Marimba Mallets are a full range medium soft to hard mallet that speaks clearly in all registers, yet still rolls smoothly. The most popular "general use" mallet In the Stevens Series. The L Model is the original, smaller; lighter LS15.can play a full range, soft to medium hard mallet that speaks clearly in all registers. This model is warm and full-bodied up to forte where a hint of brightness begins to project.
The nine models in the Stevens line are the smoothest rolling, least "slappy" mallets for solo marimba playing available anywhere in the world. Each model has four to six distinct layers of construction which work with the player to generate maximum bar sound, minimize contact noise and offer superb low-dynamic control, all without sacrificing any of the high volume potential of a normal mallet. These layers of construction and performance features are built into a mallet that is medium weight, perfectly balanced and therefore easy to maneuver through today's challenging solo literature.
All Leigh Howard Stevens mallets feature super-soft, and now improved, longer lasting yarn and select birch handles.
