Christopher Lamb Orchestral Series – Xylophone Mallets


Christopher LambAfter more than two years of intense development, this exceptional collection of mallets takes clear aim at the unique timbre possibilities that one is able to create on the xylophone.  The Christopher Lamb Orchestral Series xylophone mallets are constructed with individually engineered custom-molded cores with varying weights specific to each model, strategically placed in either the top or center of the mallet head to create optimum feel, balance, and sound.  This series allows the player to experience the colorful, comically clever side of the xylophone’s character, as well as its cutting edge, powerhouse presence required in a concert hall.  Take time to examine the wood on wood collection (made with wooden cores) for an ever expanding point of view.  Given the considerable magnitude of orchestral repertoire, the countless solo materials written for xylophone, along with the varieties of touch needed, these tools will help the player craft his or her desired sound.

These mallets are built on birch dowels with a natural finish and allow for a heavy bass sound without sounding muddy or washy, a delicate touch for lyrical legato passages that speak from the mallet immediately, and a steady timbre throughout the dynamic range.  The two softest mallets are also available with a soft yarn wrap.
