The Marimba One Ivana Bilic IBR4  Medium Hard Rattan Marimba Mallets were developed to emphasize the singing characteristic of the marimba by relating the sounds each mallet makes to human vocal qualities. 

Ivana's series consists of five wool/synthetic yarn mallets and one wool/wool yarn mallet. The wool yarn warms the sound, the synthetic yarn provides articulation. 

In describing her mallets Ivana has created a scale that utilizes the language of vocal range and timbre. Her definitions for each mallet combine the ideal playing range for a mallet with the color/timbre of its sound. Note: The scale follows a hard to soft progression, but loosely, as hardness alone is not enough to define each mallet. 


Singing Quality: Dramatic Baritone 

Yarn Color: Navy Blue/Lavender 

Hardness: Medium Hard Synthetic/Wool 

Rattan Handles
