The Vic Firth T1 Timpani Mallets are as popular as they are practical. Vic Firth has become a big name in the drumstick industry but before he was making sticks he was a legendary timpanist for the Boston Symphony Orchestra. He used his decades of knowledge to design simple, dependable mallets for players of all ages and abilities. This is the perfect mallet for any beginning timpani student as well an excellent “general” mallet for orchestras, bands and churches. -Adam
