Product Details

American Custom® Timpani Mallets - These American Custom® 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. Natural finish.


T1: General (Great 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.)
T6: Custom General (Larger and heavier than T1. Produces an enormous sound.)
