Discover our different Vibraphone mallets for Study, Concert, Jazz and Signature!
A vibraphone wand produces sound upon impact with the metal blades of the instrument. The core, mainly rubber, is wrapped in a fine wool. The sound depends in part on the composition and hardness of the rubber core. Intermediate layers can be added to provide a "double sound" or rebound effect. Finally, the tension of the wire during winding can vary the sound.
The head is fitted on rattan (appreciated for its flexibility), wood (more rigid) or fiberglass handles (rigidity at the bottom of the handle, and low flexibility at the level of the head).
