This package includes a Paiste M3 Mallet, pair of Unlimited Uttam Mallets, Ollihess Lite 100 Mallet, and the option to add a pair of Ollihess Lava Friction Mallets (30 and 40 mm).
We put together this mallet package for sound therapists, percussionists, composers, and yoga instructors using 22" to 26" nickel silver symphonic gongs made in the European gongmaking tradition.
We included a range of mallets, sized specifically for 22" and 26" nickel gongs, meant to draw out the full range of sounds and subtleties these types of gongs can offer. Read about each of the mallets included below to find what each one provides.
The Paiste M3 Mallet has a weighted core, wrapped in soft, synthetic wool. It has a light, metal handle, perfectly balanced for the player. It emphasizes the deep fundamental tone while also highlighting harmonics and overtones without too much attack or "thunk" up-front or too much crash on the finish.
The Unlimited Medium Uttam (Blue) Mallets feature medium-hard, yarn-wrapped heads, with light, thin handles, providing fast attack and a precise, clear, fundamental tone without a crash. These mallets are great for tapping the gong to get deep tones or gentle rolls.
Ollihess Lite 100 Mallet has a very lightweight, furry head, with a very light wooden handle. The light weight allows for freedom, balance and control, allowing for gentle playing that highlights the complex harmonics on the gong.
The Ollihess (30 and 40 mm) Lava Friction Mallets have textured black rubber heads, designed specifically to prevent leaving rubber residue on the gong. These mallets are perfect for creating mysterious whale noises.
