Michael is head of the percussion program at the Eastman School of Music and is interntionally respected as a marimba virtuoso, composer and teacher. The Michael Burritt Series is built around 1-1/8-inch diameter natural rubber cores. All of the models also have one or more additional layers of latex rubber for a more complex, multi-toned response pattern. All models are wrapped with a custom synthetic yarn that has been designed to have great durability and just a touch of contact “chiff” for the cutting power Michael requires. All models feature select birch shafts.
A fat-sounding mallet that is good for heavy, struck-note passage work and rolls. Updated “Version 2.0” model released in Nov. 2019.
Produces a huge sound throughout the range of the marimba. Updated “Version 2.0” model released in Nov. 2019.
Full sound in all the registers and rolls well at medium dynamic levels. A great general mallet for those who want the sound of a rubber core and a bit of bite to the attack. Updated “Version 2.0” model released in Nov. 2019.
Has a wide timbral range and has the potential cutting power of a much harder mallet when pushed to high dynamic levels.
