These mallets are heavy and awesome!!
In my search for mallets that produce cutting edge without the sound getting too clanky, and mallets that have the weight and power to carry the fundamental tone of my bars, I have experimented with a lot of different mallet types and brands.
The mallets I've played from Vic Firth (Gary Burton, Stefon Harris), ABC, Malletech (Mike Mainieri, David Friedman, David Samuels [R.I.P.]), Musser (Mike Mainieri, Gary Burton Good Vibes), Mike Balter and even old Deagans all seemed to get close to ideal but lacking the last bit of bite, power and depth.
Now I've discovered these mallets from Innovative Percussion, designed - I believe - by Anders Åstrand, and I absolutely love the entire range (well I've only bought the three softest sets) but they all sound fantastic on my old Deagan bars.
I will say that the softest of the lot are very muffled which makes it quite difficult to hear the attack - especially in a live setting with a drummer. They are however great for ballads and solo work.
All the mallets are very heavy, so it takes a lot of muscle power to play four-mallet style, but the sound is huge and fat, and I totally recommend these mallets.

Best Vibes, Mo'.

Great Mallets, Nice and Durable
DanLeeds, 21.12.2020
Got these as a starter set of mallets for vibraphone.
Already being a percussionist these felt great, with a nice rebound and a good absorption of impact. Not too heavy on the wrists, but have a good weight and feel.
My only criticism is that the heads are rather small. This does not affect playing, and would be preferable for 4 mallet playing on most orchestral percussion instruments. Depending on the image you want to go for when playing these may not fit the 'milt Jackson' large head style of playing
