Theodore Milkov Marimba Mallets
From the mind of the ever-innovative and always impressive performer and educator Theodor Milkov comes the Theodor Milkov Marimba Mallet Collection. Renown for his creative approach to the instrument and astounding technical ability, Theodor Milkov now offers his sound in a series of unique marimba mallets that provide a soft, dark sound while still maintaining an incredible amount of articulation and feel. In Theo’s own words, a “dream come true".
The blended Mohair yarn balances with the core to create a focused sound where the true tone of the marimba bar is singularly realized at all times. Played at the softest of dynamics, the bar truly sings without unwanted extraneous sounds. The premium hickory shafts provide the added weight the mallet needs to produce low frequencies, and the strength of the wood increases control and longevity.
