This package includes the Unlimited Sweet Spot Mallet, Unlimited Legendary Classic Mallet, Innovative Percussion CL-BD8 Rollers, Encore SG-5 Mallet, and the option to add a Set of 3 Alien Friction Mallets.
We put together this mallet package for sound therapists, percussionists, composers, and yoga instructors using 34" to 36" Chinese and similar bronze-style gongs.
We included a range of mallets, sized specifically for 34" and 36" gongs, meant to draw out the full range of sounds these types and sizes of gongs can offer. Read about each of the mallets included below to find what each one provides.
The Unlimited Sweet Spot Mallet
has a soft, furry head with a weighted core. It features a balanced, wooden handle. This combination provides player control, bringing out a deep fundamental tone with subtle resonance and harmonics, without too much attack ("thunk" sound) or mallet noise.
The Unlimited Legendary Classic
has a weighted, medium-hard, yarn-wrapped head, with a sturdy wooden handle, providing fast attack and a clear, deep fundamental tone without too much resonance or crash. This mallet is great for tapping the gong to get concentrated, deep tones.
The Encore SG-5 Mallet
is a lighter yarn-wrapped mallet with a wooden handle. The hard, smaller head is great for finding special pockets of tones in your gong by tapping around the face. Innovative Percussion CL-BD8 Rollers
have soft, lightweight heads, with an elongated core to increase surface contact. They have thin, light wooden handles, making them perfect for gong rolls that build resonant swells without too much attack (or "thunk").
The Set of 3 Alien Friction Mallets have rubber heads and thin, flexible handles, perfect for dragging across the face of your gong to create a range of tones and mysterious whale sounds.
