Each pair of mallets is sorted by our specialists and they account the compile of sets:

The above criteria are complied with the greatest possible precision, which is due to say: all mallets are the same perfectly within a set.
We recommend Sutai mallets especially for adult musicians, because its weight exceeds the othermallets' weight considerably. This feature lends solid, rich voice to each mallet. Their handle is made from multiple selected mountain maple, which provides the suppleness and flexibility to them against the birch wood. They are usable on all types and brands of marimba equally.

We invested the emphasise to achieve the perfect sound of course, but we took into account other aspects, such as the durability of the mallet.
