Medium hard. The most universal choice in the series. A virtual all-purpose mallet!

Developed along with some of the world's greatest contemporary chamber music ensembles - including So Percussion, Third Coast Percussion, Meehan/Perkins Duo and Eighth Black Bird - the Contemporary Series vibraphone mallets are perfectly suited for the demands of contemporary repertoire!

The Contemporary Series vibraphone mallets feature 100% synthetic cord for maximum durability and consistent tone. Medium-weighted rubber cores create a clear and appropriate sound. High-grade rattan shafts provide the ideal feel and sound on the vibraphone, making this series the perfect choice for contemporary chamber, percussion ensemble, orchestral and solo literature.

• Length: 15.375"
• Material: Rattan
• Head Material: Synthetic Cord
• Produce a pure warm tone

Do not buy these mallets. They are extremely overpriced and sound/feel like garbage. The first problem was that it took approximately 3 months for me to receive them after ordering. These have no definition or clarity in any register of the vibraphone. I?m mostly a jazz player, so I look for mallets with speed and articulation - NOT THESE. They are very heavy and the shaft is super thick. You might be better off getting a drum stick, sticking a tennis ball on the top, and playing vibes with that than using these mallets. You can buy $30 pairs of mallets that sound and feel far better than these. Disappointed.
