Just like the musicians that play with them, timpani mallets come in all kinds of different shapes and sizes. Timpani mallets are used in pairs and have two main components - a shaft and a head. The shaft is typically made of hardwood or bamboo but may also be made from aluminum or carbon fiber. The head of the stick can be constructed from a number of different materials, though felt wrapped around a wood core is the most common. The weight of the stick, its size and surface area all contribute to the sound produced by the mallet. From general, all-around playing sticks to specialized mallets designed by award-winning timpanists, this section is home to a wide variety of timpani mallets. Because there are so many varieties of timpani mallets on the market, it's a good idea to start your search with some of this section's top sellers. Mallet series like the Mike Balter Timpani Mallets and Vater Ultra Staccato Timpani Mallets are great choices because they give you the opportunity to select a size based on your specific sound needs.
