The Encore Nancy Zeltsman NZ8R Boomer Bass Rattan Marimba Mallets offer a heavier headed yarn mallet for the solo marimbist. Latex cores wrapped with soft European wool yarn. These mallets were designed to meet the highest standards of world-renowned marimbist Nancy Zeltsman. Their weighty heads of soft, Peruvian wool yarn allows musicians to create consistently warm tones at all dynamic levels, and are thus an outstanding choice for solo and ensemble marimba artistry. NZ Series mallets feature latex wrapped disk cores and are available in eight degrees of hardness for musical expression on the full range of the marimba.
"Dan Lidster is a master mallet-smith with enormous sensitivity to the various tones mallets can produce” - Nancy Zeltsman, marimba soloist, educator
