Vic Firth’s bass drum mallets combine seamless, round felt heads with tapered maple handles for deep, dark sounds without excessive weight. The exception is the BD8 with its extraordinary weight and contoured shaft. The gong mallets feature turned maple handles and are offered with fleece covered (GB1-2) or yarn wound (GB3-4) heads.
Tom Gauger developed his line of mallets during his 35+ year career with the Boston Symphony and Boston Pops Orchestras and as an educator at Boston University and the Boston University Tanglewood Institute. Each product was developed on the job and for the job to solve a technical problem or achieve a desired sound. Sold as individual mallets unless otherwise noted.
