Vic Firth Corpsmaster Andrew Markworth Signature Hard Marimba Mallets
L = 16 3/4"
"My goal with this mallet series was to create maximum sound projection while maintaining a dark tone quality," states Markworth. "We now have a series that creates a big, natural sound from the front ensemble that will carry all the way to the press box. Anyone looking to improve the maturity of sound and presence of their mallet section will surely do so with these new mallets!"
The new Markworth Signature Series features 6 models -- 3 for marimba and 3 for vibraphone. The marimba mallets feature large birch shafts (11/32" diameter) for increased articulation and sound projection. 100% synthetic yarn with double-stitching provides maximum durability and weather resistance. The vibe mallets feature thick rattan shafts and are also wrapped in 100% synthetic yarn for added warmth to the sound with maximum durability and weather resistance.
