Creates a beautiful singing sound in the low register.
Soft. Designed with the solo marimba performer in mind, the Virtuoso Series features a rubber core wrapped with a wool blend yarn for an enhanced warm and full-bodied sound. The handles are made of birch with a unique "slip-resistant" finish for excellent feel and enhanced control. A fine choice in ensemble settings, as well. L = 17"

Comments about Vic Firth Virtuoso Series Keyboard Mallet:
This review is only on the Vic Firth virtuoso MEDIUMS. These are great mallets if you're wanting to do rolls and other things in the lower register of a marimba, particularly a 5 octave. The downside is, these mallets only work well there - sound does not cut in the upper register at all even with power strokes. But that doesn't make these bad mallets. Only bad if you're trying to do a piece like "Shadow Chasers" that involves a lick that runs all the way from the bottom to the top right after a chorale...
