These are traditional felt timp-tom mallets epoxied onto heavy-gauge aluminum shafts with vinyl grips. Timp-tom players don't play thousands of strokes, they play tens of thousands of strokes. And even though we use the highest quality felt available, eventually the felt will soften. We recommend that you use the Radials or the Lexans for general playing and the Felts for softer sounds.
Lexan is a bulletproof material which serves our drumlines well by providing the necessary toughness to penetrate the air with articulation and to punch the sound into the stands. Heavy-gauge aluminum shaft, vinyl grip.

HH6 - Headhunters
The 1-1/2" Lexan disk permits the mallet to snap from drum head to drum head more readily without coming into contact with the rims. Primarily used for executing sweeps, cartwheels, and windmills. Heavy-gauge aluminum shaft, vinyl grip.

JB6 - Jitterbugs
The advantage of a smaller 1-1/4" Lexan disk is that it offers rapid decay while promoting close, articulated sounds. Excellent for doubling rhythmic passages of the keyboards. Heavy-gauge aluminum shaft, vinyl grip.

RD7 - Radials
Since 1983, the Radials have been the most popular all-purpose timp-tom mallets on the market. An aluminum hub is equipped with a specially molded 90 durometer SBR rubber tire, and the combination is then press-fitted onto a heavy-gauge aluminum shaft with a vinyl grip. Built to last!
