Add to Wishlist
This package includes a Paiste M4 Mallet, Encore KG4 Mallet, Ollihess Lite 200 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 28" to 30" nickel silver symphonic gongs made in the European gongmaking tradition.

We included a range of mallets, sized specifically for 28" and 30" 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 M4 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 Encore KG4 Mallet features a hard, yarn-wrapped head, providing fast attack and a clear, deep fundamental tone without much crash or resonance. This mallet is great for tapping the gong to get clear deep tones.

Ollihess Lite 200 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.
