This mallet works best with gongs 28" and above.
The Yin Yang Gong Mallet helps make difficult decisions obsolete. Two different sounds–contrary yet complementary–are melded perfectly together in one mallet. The grey side of the mallet, designed for faster attack, pulls the full sonic range from the gong. The beige side is sleepier, for a soft attack that pulls soft and gentle resonant vibrations and harmonics from the gong.
Go both ways with this mallet!
