Profile: Lite Staccato
Constructed to the highest professional standards, our ChromaTone I Timpani Mallets cost significantly less than many hand-made timpani professional mallets!
- Solid wood or cork core – true, pitch focused sound
- Seamlessly sewn felt – beautiful tone
- High quality bamboo shaft – strong & lightweight
- Rubber sleeve – positive grip
- Color coded head – quick model identification
The sound of our ChromaTone mallets can best be described as having great clarity with a focused pitch center. The mating of the seamless heads to lightweight bamboo handles provides the ability to produce a round sonority with greater fundamental purity. A round timpani mallet also allows for the player to change the angle of the mallet without affecting the sound.
The bamboo handles of our ChromaTone mallets are as feature-rich as the felt mallet heads. A smooth sleeve ensures a secure hold and more comfort than typical bamboo mallets. Our bamboo is hand-selected for consistency in density and straightness, with each handle measuring 14 inches long with a 0.5-inch diameter. In addition, every pair is also carefully weight- and color-matched.
