From bright to dark, there’s a mallet here for your musical situation. Designed for glockenspiel and xylophone, they also work well on a number of other orchestral percussion instruments.
OS1 is very bright and medium heavy mallet producing a clear and big sound on a glockenspiel. This model is the ideal choice for large scale symphonic repertoire.
OS2 is a bright sounding mallet producing a clear tone on most sizes of glockenspiel. Its core weight is lighter than OS1 therefore more suitable for fast passages of repertoire.
OS3 produces a medium bright, warm tone and is a great choice for softer or quieter glockenspiel repertoire. Its relatively light weight core makes it easy to manoeuvre around repertoire with a particularly fast tempo.
OS4 creates a bright timbre and projects sound very clearly. Ideal for general orchestral xylophone repertoire it makes for a good ‘go-to’ mallet. It is light weight making it easy to play fast passages or when using a set of four mallets.
Producing the lightest tone and having the lightest weight in the Orchestral series, OS5 is suitable for orchestral repertoire requiring a delicate timbre. This model is is also suitable for solo ‘Ragtime’ music.
