Today there is a demand for models targeted for very special excerpts, as well as a movement toward lighter, smaller heads for certain applications. There is no greater expert on orchestral keyboard repertoire than William James, principal percussionist of the St. Louis Symphony. Will has expanded the original OR line into a vast selection of sounds and tone colors, with many different materials, weights, sizes and handle types. Of course our new orchestral rosewood mallets are made from the same genuine Honduran Rosewood as our marimba and xylophone bars (no imitations!). Malletech makes history again with three different levels of fiberglass handle flexibility on the Mini-Glock models: Black, Red and White” expertly paired to the weight of the mallet head.
