Salyers Percussion Marching Arts Vibraphone
- Extra-durable cord wrap
- Durable rotan handles
- Color-coded butt ends
Flexible rattan shafts make mallet dampening much easier than birch.
As a very handy bonus, these mallets have color-coded butt ends so you can tell which ones are which even when you put them head-first into a mallet bag!
MAV10 - Soft - Green
These soft mallets are useful for delicate or nuanced moments in a show that highlight the front ensemble - like a ballad - when you want beautiful vibraphone tones to just appear in the music without hearing that initial attack sound.
MAV20 - Medium Soft - Blue
This pair will give you the kinds of sounds you want for the majority of your show, whether it's intricate permutation-based licks in the opener or loud, high chords in the middle of the ballad.
MAV30 - Hard - Orange
If you've got some fast runs or a lot of aggressive music, particularly on the high end of the vibraphone, you'll want a pair of these.
MAV40 - Extra Hard - Yellow
Need to cut through an entire drum corps or marching band? These mallets have very hard cores that will let the audience hear every note at any dynamic.
