The JW5 is the hardest marimba mallet in the Jim Wunderlich signature series. It features a hard synthetic core wrapped tightly with an extra durable polyester cord on a lacquered birch shaft for a smooth finish with maximum strength. Use this light and easily maneuverable mallet in the high register for quick, articulate or colorful passages.
Pro-Mark is proud to have Jim Wunderlich as an endorser and signature artist. His new nine mallet series with System Blue should not be considered for marching alone. While they have durable components for outdoor environments, the lush TONE of these mallets is an appropriate and tasteful choice for indoor concert or marching settings.
