    Comments about Mike Balter Basic Yarn Mallets:

    Having a small budget to work with, I bought the medium (blue) mallets for my music classroom. I bought three pair. Within one week one pair already unraveled and one stick snapped. Less than three months into the school year and all 3 pair have unraveled. The mallets are still intact and I can rewrap, which will be a long process. The yarn itself is junk and has no strength what so ever. A little tug and it rips apart. Very disappointed.

    Good mallets, until...

    Comments about Mike Balter Basic Yarn Mallets:

    I bought these mallets as a cheap pair that I could take around with me to workshops and clinics for students to use, without having to worry about hurting them. But after about an hour of use, these mallets started falling apart! by the end of the first day, one mallet was completely unwound. But if you are a very, very soft player, these will work fine for you. But for serious players, spend the extra money for good mallets.

    Pretty good

    Comments about Mike Balter Basic Yarn Mallets:

    I don't know why some of these people gave these mallets such a low rating. I won a pair of medium (blue) mallets and they work fine. I think that the name Balter Basics automatically makes people think that these are inferior in some way, which is not the case. I've used $50 pairs of Balter and there's not much difference, in some cases (esp for 4 mallet playing) I like balter basics more because of their longer shaft. If you are looking for a practice marimba/xylophone mallet, this isn't such a bad idea.
