Rub them on everything. Stick a contact mic on a thing and rub it with a mallet.

I saw some videos of studio folk rubbing these on gongs and large drums to create horror movie atmosphere sounds. I don't have that at home. But I do have doors, windows, bathtub, kitchen floor, acoustic guitar, desk (didn't work on my dog). The sound these things make is mad, I love it. Don't tell your partner you have them and rub them on the outside of her bedroom door at 3 am.
I highly recommend them to everyone interested in sound effects and sound design. Experiment and have fun.

OK for light use, but not so good for intense rubbing
Kevin Lyons 14.08.2019
I bought these for use on a gong. The three sizes make for some unusual sounds. Very smooth and resonating with little 'chatter' from bouncing while rubbing. The low score is due to the fact that the middle sized mallet came apart. The ball came off the stick and I couldn't use it any longer. I could have put glue in it I guess, but more so enjoyed the smaller and larger mallets. There is medium flex in the handle and this gave a good pressure to the ball against the gong. Would probably look for something else if I were to be interested.

i use these mainly on gongs and drum heads. the bigger ones a quite sturdy, but i have accidentally launched the rubber heads of the smaller ones into the audience twice now while trying to give a high pitched accent on a gong (i mean the heads tend to come off - i even had this with a new set). if you plan on using them live, make sure you have a spare set in case one decides to bounce off into the distance all by itself.

Works well, but quality lacks
Zsemle 26.04.2022
It produces a nice effect on a gong. So it works very well for what we wanted it. That's great, but there are some issues.

The head - which is just a bouncy ball basically - came off the shaft after very little use.
The whole thing is just a bouncy ball on a lollypop stick. It feels extremely cheap, and therefore this product feels WILDLY overpriced. Feels like something that should be 5 euros in at amusement park kiosk.
