Mike Balter Rubber Unwound Mallets
Mike Balter makes a wide variety of unwound mallets for keyboard playing. Because of the various hardnesses the use will vary according to the instrument being played. The two handles we feature are Birch and Rattan. Birch is light weight, very strong and durable. Because of the lack of flex, Marimba players often choose this type of shaft, The Rattan is very flexible and has a bend to it. Vibe players especially recommend this handle and they are the top choice for Bells and Xylophone as well. The Mallets listed below are Rubber heads with choice of Birch or Rattan handles.
