... if you are a jazz drummer at least :-) Amazing price, really soft mallets, ideal for jazz. Stick is quite thin, which I like, making it really light and ideal for some great dinamics. Felt tip is still there after a year of use, really there is no negative feature here. Mallet tip is not too big so it fits in even smaller stick bags without the problem. Highly recommended.
I used these along side professional level mallets and there is not much difference. They cost a fifth of the price, and the actual balls on the top are pretty much the same. The big difference is the stick aspect of the mallet, which is made of a fairly cheap feeling wood, but this doesn't bother me to the extent of spending much more money on money on them.
