Anders Astrand Signature Mallets - Orange and Blue
Vic Firth Artist Anders Astrand’s new signature mallets are designed to capture his classic sound (orange) and to explore bold new sonic spaces (blue).
Orange Series is inspired by string quartets, brass quintets and vocal choirs, the individual mallets in this series share a common sound color that allows their individual voices to speak beautifully together. While they are a great choice for solo playing, the Orange series are exceptional mallets for keyboard ensemble settings, where instruments must blend.
Blue Series is designed to support the soloist as well as the percussionist playing in an ensemble setting, the Blue series is a bit heavier, producing rich sounds with great projection. Added weight allows the mallets to speak clearly without the player needing to do all of the work.
