These models reflect Vic’s fifty years of experience as Solo Timpanist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Each mallet is turned from a single piece of rock maple, which eliminates a core that could rattle and the need for a screw-on washer to secure the head. Coupled with round seamless heads, they produce bigger and brighter sounds.
T1 General: For all-around playing. Produces rich sound yet is capable of rhythmic clarity.
T2 Cartwheel: Very soft. Ideal for soft rolls, legato strokes and the richest sounds.
T3 Staccato: Medium hard for rhythmic articulation.
T4 Ultra Staccato: Hard. Produces the clearest rhythmic projection of the felt models.
T5 Wood: Very hard. A special effects mallet.
