The Wood Handle Chalklin Gong Mallets
are made for people love gongs.

Gongs are large, shiny, reverberating, elegant, heavy metal things! They have infiltrated cartoons, seminars, yoga classes, and the hearts of people all over the world. Humans feel gongs. Pure love and true desire are poured into the gong and yet, while a gong can stand elegantly and hold the gaze of a room, if it is alone it is silent. Mallets do not have the gong's visual pull nor do they reverberate with the same brassy, hypnotizing sound...however, without a mallet, what is a gong?

We wrap our fingers around mallets and wield them wildly, they emanate our power, and yet, somehow, when visualizing a gong in the mind's eye, mallets are overlooked.

A quality mallet is just as important as a quality gong and Chalklin mallets, artisanally crafted, certainly qualify as quality mallets. Paul Chalklin established the company in 1971 and has created their mallets through extensive research gathered from meetings with a wide variety of different percussionists. Hand-crafted using the finest materials, these mallets are distributed around the world.

Paiste Percussion used to have their mallets made exclusively by Chalklin. They  eventually begin to manufacture their own mallets but Chalklin still produces their mallets for sound plates and other tuned mallet percussion.

Chalklin Mallet Company is motivated by Paul Chalklin's belief that mallets can satisfy the specific demands of professional musicians, while still remaining affordable. Chalklin produces mallets of such high quality, they were chosen as the main manufacturer of Paiste Gong Mallets for many years. This goal is firmly reflected in the exact materials and meticulous craftsmanship of these mallets.
