Yarn

We only use custom made, 100% synthetic, specialist technical yarn. Our yarn stands the test of time with many of the first mallets we manufactured still being used today.

Handles

Rattan is the generic name of approximately 600 species of climbing plants existing in only a few parts of the world, mostly South East Asia. Our Indonesian rattan handles are selected for strength and straightness. Our maple handles are sourced exclusively from North America, they are strong, straight and smooth. Each handle is given a light coat of sealant to preserve the wood without diminishing its natural feel.

Mallet heads

Each mallet head is threaded, creating a mechanical bond between head and handle. This extra step increases the bond significantly reducing the risk of a mallet head flying off!  Our mallet cores are precision manufactured with cutting edge  moulding and grinding machines, they are perfectly balanced and perfectly round.

Inner layers

Each model produces unique tonal characteristics derived from different internal core structures. Materials including latex, felt, foam and plastic (to name just a few) are combined to produce a specific sound for a particular instrument. 

Bonding

Our pursuit to find the right glue took over two years. Bonding mallet cores to mallet handles is of paramount importance and something we take very seriously. We use aerospace technology glue with outstanding strength. To this day we’ve not had a single pair returned because of a head becoming loose.
