The Salyers Percussion PCX21 features a large 1 1/4” soft plastic ball. The rubber-like material works extremely well on marimba, vibraphone and xylophone. The rattan shafts are matched in diameter and flex. This is a very versatile mallet.
This model is available in the Marching Arts Collection with added weight. Model number MAX10
The Performance Collection unwound mallets are designed to offer a comprehensive selection of sonic possibilities to the advanced percussionist. Head sizes available are 1”, 1 1/8” and 1 1/4”. The rattan size sets this series apart from any other series available. The trend of using very thick rattan on unwound mallets results in a stiff shaft that does not allow the natural flex of rattan to help get the best sound from the keys. We use a rattan size that feels good yet flexes just enough to help you get the best sound possible from your instruments.
