This package includes the Unlimited Sweet Spot Mallet, a pair of Unlimited Space Grapes, one Vic Firth GB4 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 30" to 32" Chinese and similar bronze-style gongs.
We included a range of mallets, sized specifically for 30" and 32" 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 Vic Firth Medium GB4 Mallet
has a weighted, hard, yarn-wrapped head providing fast attack and a clear, fundamental tone without, much resonance or crash. This mallet is great for tapping the gong to get concentrated, deep tones.
Our Unlimited Space Grapes
have small, furry heads, with long, lightweight handles, making them perfect for doing 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.
