Discover our different Marimba mallets for Concert, Marimba Vibra and Signature!
A marimba stick produces sound upon impact with the wooden blades of the instrument. The core, especially in wood or rubber, is wrapped in a strong wool. The sound depends in part on the composition and hardness of the core, as well as the intermediate layers under the wool: felt, baize, latex, etc., which provide, for example, a "double-sound" effect or rebound. Finally, the tension of the wire during winding can vary the sound.
The head is fitted with rattan (appreciated for its flexibility) or wood (more rigid).
Discover our different ranges: Etude, Concert, Marimba-Vibra, Gaston Sylvestre and Signature – Vassilena Serafimova.
This range takes up the very versatile mallets for the marimba of the "Concert" series for vibraphone. You will find more than 11 different hardnesses, choosing your favorite handle (rattan, wood or fiberglass). We take great care with the finishes: additional seams are added to provide aesthetics and resistance, and the sleeves are carefully selected and oiled. It is useful to specify that even-numbered models (V2, V4, V6, etc.) are “double sound” mallets.
This range from the origins of Vibrawell was created by and for Gaston Sylvestre, the experienced percussionist of the 60s and 70s. Buds light thanks to small wooden cores, but full of vitality and bounce. The sleeves are a little shorter (410mm).
