Brought to you by Vic Firth, the American Custom Timpani Mallets T6 Custom General mallets offer a seamless blend of tradition and innovation. Constructed from only the highest grade felt, these mallets provide fantastic sound and response for today's most discerning timpanists. Slightly larger and heavier than the T1 model, the T6 mallets produce an enormous yet nuanced sound. The T6 mallets are ideal for musicians seeking to push the creative boundaries of orchestral percussion.

Handcrafted Maple Shafts for Superior Playability

At the core of the T6 mallets are hand selected maple shafts that provide exceptional response and feel. The lightweight yet durable maple wood transmits subtle articulations and dynamics with ease, allowing percussionists to achieve a high degree of control and expression. The shafts' ergonomic handle shape reduces fatigue over long rehearsals and performances.

Seamless Felt Heads for Optimal Tone

The T6 mallets feature seamless felt heads measuring 1 3⁄4 inches in diameter, which produce a wide range of tones from the timpani. The high-quality felt delivers a warm, resonant sound with clear pitch definition. Percussionists can achieve a variety of articulations, from staccato to legato, with these versatile mallets.
