The Salyers Marching Arts Series mallets are designed specifically for field and indoor percussion applications. The yarn wound mallets take advantage of the marimba's natural warmth while having the ability to project even at the highest dynamic levels.
The shafts are a rigid birch with a clear lacquer applied for added weather resistance.
Another one of Salyers perfect and useful finishing touches is the color-coding of the butt end of the shafts. You'll always know which mallets are coming out of the bag - and no more taping the ends! Another great feature is the model number is etched into the shaft so it won't rub off over time.
The MAM40 are hard - great for the mid and upper range of the instrument and with fantastic articulation.
