Heads made from special rubber we make in two sizes X1 and X2 and in two basic hardnesses Medium and Hard.
Head with 24 mm diameter made from hard rubber is equivalent of the hardest marimba mallets and are best suited for practising or accompaniment. The hardness of the heads material is chosen so that the mallets are applicable to the entire range of instrument, but do not worsen the practising with sharp frequencies. Their sound has more flapping character and in the lower scale of the instrument pleasantly prolongs tone reverberation.
Head with 24 mm diametter is made of very hard rubber. The hardness of a material is somewhere between the hard rubber and soft plastic. The sound is approaching classical sharp wooden tone commonly used hard sticks and universal usage can be performed on entire scale of the instrument.
FSX2 Medium and Hard
They are bigger head variation mallets of FSX1 model and has a diameter of 30mm. They’re best for orchestral playing, where the better audibility is needed. Due to the bigger size of heads can xylophone bars completely resonate with all mid frequencies with full tone.
Shafts for xylophone mallets are mostly maked from rattan. 8-9 mm in diameter and 36 cm length (can be customized). Beech or birch shafts also avaiable.
