Our General Series Timpani Mallets are made using 1/2" straight white hickory shafts and wooden cores. This combination provides the warmest possible sound out of the drums. The straight shafts help with projection both indoors and outdoors. The mallets are then wrapped in the highest quality German and polyester felt available in a parachute style, meaning you never have to worry about avoiding a seam.
GT1 - Legato - This is the softest mallet in the GT series and achieves a full tone with minimal contact sound.
GT2 - General soft - A great choice for general timpani playing, this mallet is full and warm with slightly less contact sound than the GT3.
GT3 - General - This mallet is the most versatile mallet in the series because it sounds great in every musical situation.
GT4 - Staccato - This mallet is the perfect combination of tone and articulation, and it still retains the warm sounds that help define our GT series.
GT5 - Ultra Staccato - The hardest mallet in the GT series that can cut through any ensemble.
