Multi-tone. Hard to medium. Provides sharp clarity in the highest range of the instrument without a harsh "core attack" sound in the lower range. Great for much of the contemporary literature. L = 17 1/4"
An active recitalist, clinician and master class teacher, Gifford Howarth designed this new line of marimba mallets to create the highest quality of sound for the recital hall or within an ensemble. Each model allows the specific characteristics of each range to shine through - a deep full bass, a full sounding mid-range and a cutting high end. With long lasting yarn for durability and clear, unfinished birch shafts for a natural feel.
