M39 – Ed Saindon
Model: ( M39 )
A natural rubber core tightly wrapped with thin cord generates a full sound with exceptional clarity at all dynamic levels. Perfect for both vibraphone and marimba. Rattan handles.
Over the course of his career as a world-renowned performer and educator, Ed Saindon has developed a sound all his own by way of his pianistic approach to mallet playing. His expressivity and nuance on the instrument is intrinsically linked both to his unique 4-mallet technique and to his mallets themselves.
“When we set out to update my signature mallet, I knew I wanted a little more agility, but I didn’t want to sacrifice the fullness or clarity that my original M38 was known for,” states Ed. “The natural rubber core of the new M39 combined with a carefully selected cord provides a great playing experience with the perfect balance of fullness and clarity across the range of the instrument and at all dynamic levels.”
Constructed for a versatile sound, Ed’s new M39 mallet is great on both vibraphone and marimba. Rattan handles and an appropriately-weighted core make this a well-balanced and extremely playable mallet.
