These perfectly balanced steel pan mallets have been carefully designed to get the best sound from your steel pan and minimise the effect on its tuning. Their heads are made from a single ring of medium hard rubber, and the smooth hardwood shafts are comfortable to hold for long periods. The beaters are also just the right length and weight to facilitate maximum agility making them ideal for the more complex melodies played on lead and other treble pans.
The heads for our steel pan mallets are made by our partners in Akron, Ohio, known as the rubber capital of the world – indeed, their closely guarded polymer recipes can be found in a rich variety of applications around the globe. After extensive research, they have created the perfect textures, densities, and shapes for the distinctive Caribbean percussion instruments.
