The larger, lilac-colored head of the B49R model provides a tone that is warm and full-bodied across the entire range of the instrument. Ideal for ballads and more expressive lines, these mallets create a big sound with clear definition. Identifiable by a lilac cord.

The B48R model has a medium-sized light purple head offering fast response while providing plenty of impact. Great mallets for an all-around vibe sound. The B48R is ideal for when you need a mallet that will do it all.

The smaller-sized head of the B47R model is designed for articulation and quick attack and features a purple cord. A great mallet for soloists looking to accentuate faster passages.

The multi-colored model B46R mallets are a great all-around mallet for jazz vibes. They provide a warm sound with full articulation and depth at any dynamic level. The lighter mallet head allows you to move through fast melodic lines with ease.

The model B46AR also features a multi-colored cord and is similar to the model B46R, but with a slightly softer head. Warm sound with great articulation and depth.
