Vic Firth Pesante Keyboard Mallet M204
The musical term "Pesante" means to "play with weight and emphasis". And, with these extraordinary new marimba/vibraphone mallets, this is just what you can expect to achieve. All of the mallets within the Pesante Series produce a dark and bold sound that project with a beautiful sonority!
M200-M204 are designed with a thick yarn that helps to minimize attack and accomplishes a very lush quality. M205-M208 are wrapped in a high density cord for enhanced articulation while still achieving a dark and pleasing sound quality. Rattan shafts are used with all models for ideal feel with these weighted mallets.
While ultimately designed for the keyboard choir, these mallets are also an outstanding choice for enhancing the tonal color and projection for marimba and vibraphone when playing within every conceivable ensemble including orchestra, wind ensemble, marching band, drum corps and indoor marching and concert groups.
