The S70 is a classic soft marimba mallet - tuned to the smallest percussionists, as they can easily play nice bass sounds with it. Of course, it wasn't just for them, because also chamber music pieces are often need mallets that are not only soft but also lightweight.
The S70 is one of our most popular percussion mallet, as it is a perfect choice not only for marimba but also for steel tongue drum and other world music instruments. Plus, the value for money is unique: it's practically the world's cheapest "non-Chinese" marimba mallet.
100% european product, made specifically for european and american classical percussion students. So:
- NOT made of cheap materials.
- DOESN'T break in two weeks, like Chinese marimba mallets.
- I PERSONALLY try every pair of mallets before shipping -
I use these mallets every day in my work, so I know them very well. I used cheaper chinese mallets, but have bad experiences (nobody likes breaking marimba mallets...). And you may know, the most expensive marimba mallets are not always the best (I've used some of the big brands, and I know many of their mistakes).
--> I can honestly recommend every Ashkatan marimba mallets - and if you are not satisfied, you will receive a full refund!
