These six models reflect Vic's fifty years of experience as Solo Timpanist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Each mallet is turned from a single piece of rock maple, which eliminates a core that could rattle and the need for a screw-on washer to secure the head. Coupled with round seamless heads, they produce bigger and brighter sounds. T1 General Mallets are for all-around playing. They produce rich sound and are capable of rhythmic clarity.

Head: 1 1/2"
Length: 14 1/2"

  • Good Standard Mallet
  • November 30, 2014
  • By: Berliozer

These are nice for beginning students and for all-purpose mallets. They are good for accompanying tremolos and single strokes. For more soloistic and advanced material, you will likely want a slightly harder mallet head. I prefer a slightly different handle shape, which I suppose simply came with experience. However, I've owned these T1's for quite a few years and they have lasted quite well.

  • Too Soft

These mallets are alright but they're a little too soft for most of the playing I do with the community orchestra. For a more general mallet, I would recommend the T3's.
