Vibrawell specialises in the manufacturing of percussion mallets for timpanis, concer bass drums, vibraphones, marimbas, xylophones, glockenspiels and multi-percussion setups.
The company was set up in 1982 and taken over by Pré du Rein Percussion, manufacturer of percussion instruments, in 2006.
Our workshops are located in Prey, a small village in the beautiful region of Vosges (France).
We offer a large range of mallets to meet the various needs and demands of both French and international percussionists. Collaboration and discussion with the percussionists play an important role in our approach.
It is the expression of musical emotions that motivate us and we are constantly looking to innovate and improve the range of your tools, while at the same time keeping traditions alive.
This craft industry produces mallets that are to a large extent hand-made. The material used is selected with great care and goes through numerous steps before being made into a perfect pair of well-balanced mallets.
The bamboo shafts of timpani mallets are sorted according to their diameter, weight, grain and colour.
You can select your mallets from different lengths and diameters, with shafts made of bamboo or rattan.
The heads of the mallets are made from a variety of materials, with the main criteria being hardness, weight and elasticity (rebound).
If you cannot find what you are looking for amongst our large range of mallets, your order can be made to measure. A quotation will be drawn up on request.
Do not hesitate to ask for advice.
VIBRAWELL mallets are appreciated by a large number of percussionists, some of whom belong to acclaimed orchestras in France or abroad (Europe, South America, Australia, Korea, U.S.A., Taiwan…).
