Comments about Vic Firth Custom General Re-Cover Kit for Timpani Mallet (Pair):
I had some very old Ludwig mallets which had worn out coverings. I used them in my studio for cymbal rolls, but they sounded a little clunky with the soft covers worn off. These Vic Firth re-cover kits were able to retrofit my old mallets (they were not exactly the same, but they still fit) and now the mallets sound great on cymbal rolls or other percussion.
You will need a sewing needle with a large enough eye to fit the heavy thread used to cinch these around the old mallet beaters. You will also need a helper to hold the mallet because you will need both hands to tighten the new covers before you tie them off.
