If you are a music educator, you know how common it is for mallets to simply go missing in the classroom. With these hard rubber mallets, you can always afford to buy a few extra pairs just in case a pair of mallets decides to go for a walk. Backed by our Basic Beat Guarantee, you know that West Music will absolutely stand behind this product if you are not fully satisfied with your purchase. -Chris
Are these really loud on bells? I am wondering if you have used these with bell sets, similar to glockenspiel. Thanks!

Best Answer:I have used them on glock-type bells. I like the crisp sound and the range of volume they are capable of making. I would not recommend them for people who are sensitive to sound and do not understand volume control with mallets or are not capable of controlling their volume.Good luck.
YES! These are extremely loud on bells - I was unable to use them for my classes. They are a hard plastic and it really sounds terrible. I was disappointed that West did not have the soft rubber mallets that I was looking for. Good luck!
I used these mallets on basic bell sets. For those they are reasonably loud but they are not real hard mallets like I think you would want for glockenspiel. I prefer wooden mallets for glockenspiel. They get a nice crisp clean sound.
Best Answer:The Hohner Kids HMX3008B Glockenspiel would probably be the best option but we don't sell the mallet separately. That is item 203612. We don't currently sell any mallets that individually that would be appropriate for a child of that age. We do have some smaller sticks (261445) and mallets (255631) that could be used with adult supervision but they are not designed for xylophones.
