This listing is for two S186 mallets that come in their own cotton drawstring bags.
The Ollihess Medium Gong Mallets with Long Handle (S186) are similar to Paiste M1 mallets and are great to use on gongs 20" and above. The obvious difference between Ollihess mallets and Paiste mallets are the colorful plush fleece heads and the wooden versus metal handle.
While the weight of the mallet is about the same, the slightly thicker wooden handles can feel more sturdy in your hand. It gives you a great quick response for gentle playing or rolling two mallets on the gong. An added benefit is the taper at the bottom so that your hand, if it slips, knows where the bottom of handle is.
Though the short-handled mallets are featured in the video above, instead of these long-handled mallets, you can still experience the sound of this medium-headed mallet.
