Mallets / Series

Concerto Series™

The six models of the Concerto Series were designed specifically for players looking for a heavier mallet with a big sound that will project through a large ensemble, but who don’t want the contact noise that’s usually associated with this type of mallet. Compared to standard, traditional mallets of similar hardness, the player will immediately notice proportionally more fundamental tone and greater volume. While many synthetic yarns suffer from high-pitched “tick,” this yarn is very quiet on the attack, while exceeding the durability and abrasion resistance of nylon. Some sets of Concerto mallets made in the 1980s and 1990s are still in use – and still not fraying!

Concerto Series™

Model CN4 – Single-Toned – Burgundy

Model CN4 is a wide-range, soft mallet that is unusually rich in the bass, without being “thumpy” in the upper range.

Model CN9 – Soft to Medium – Multi-Toned – Slate Blue

Excellent for general use in all types of solo and ensemble situations. It will produce clear passage work throughout the full range of the marimba. Warm and rich at low volume, with a hint of brightness at higher levels.

Model CN14 – Medium to Medium-Hard – Multi-Toned – Khaki

The CN14 is a very versatile mallet in respect to its application in concerto and ensemble literature. The most popular “general” mallet in the Concerto Series.

Model CN21 – Hard to Very Hard – Multi-Toned – Canary

The CN21 is a hard to very hard mallet that still rolls well at low dynamic levels.

Model CN26 – Extra-Hard – Single-Toned – Moss Green

For the absolute maximum projection, the CN26 has the brightness of an unwrapped mallet with the warmth and versatility of attack of a wrapped mallet.

Model CN28Z – Two-Toned – White

Designed for contemporary music that has sharp dynamic and timbre contrast and high volume requirements. Also excellent as a multi-percussion mallet for cymbals, small gongs and light drum work.
