Diversity Series™ Designed by the percussion staff of The Concord Blue Devils, the Diversity Series is a part of Pro-Mark’s new System Blue line of marching and education products. This eight-mallet line features four graduated marimba mallets and four graduated xylophone mallets. It was created to satisfy any musical demand while maintaining a true, fundamental tone from the keyboard.
The DV1 through DV4 range from soft (DV1) to hard (DV4). They feature latex-wrapped synthetic heads with a nylon-wool blend yarn wrapping and a birch shaft. These mallets can be used on marimbas with either synthetic or rosewood bars.
The DV5R through DV8R range from soft (DV5R) to hard (DV8R). They feature mushroom-shaped, cord-wrapped heads on rattan shafts.
The Diversity Series mallets are in stock and available for immediate delivery.
Jim Wunderlich Autograph Mallets There are nine new keyboard mallets - 5 marimba and 4 vibraphone - by Jim Wunderlich. Although they are included within the System Blue family of marching products, these new mallets are for more than just outdoor applications. The JW series of mallets have the durability to withstand outdoor demands, while facilitating musical precision and finesse for indoor marching, concert percussion and wind ensembles.
The JW1 through JW5 are designed primarily for marimba and range from soft (JW1) to hard (JW5). Each of these mallets features a synthetic core and birch handle.
The JW6R through JW9R are designed primarily for vibraphone and range from soft (JW6R) to hard (JW9R). Each of these mallets features a rubber-like synthetic core and rattan handle. The JW6R through JW9R retail for $54.95 per pair.
The Jim Wunderlich mallets are in stock and available for immediate delivery.
