The Malletech Leigh Howard Stevens LS5 Soft Marimba Mallets have a wide-range, dark-toned mallet designed for rich struck note passages and general chorale style playing. The LS5 in the soprano position, in conjunction with three LS1 mallets, gives the performer full-ranged, velvet-smooth rolling capabilities.
The nine models in the Stevens line are the smoothest rolling, least "slappy" mallets for solo marimba playing available anywhere in the world. Each model has four to six distinct layers of construction which work with the player to generate maximum bar sound, minimize contact noise and offer superb low-dynamic control, all without sacrificing any of the high volume potential of a normal mallet. These layers of construction and performance features are built into a mallet that is medium weight, perfectly balanced and therefore easy to maneuver through today's challenging solo literature.
All Leigh Howard Stevens mallets feature super-soft, and now improved, longer lasting yarn and select birch handles.
