The American Custom® Keyboard Mallets are designed to address a range of instruments and all dynamic levels. The yarn models feature a 3-ply nylon yarn that is virtually indestructible yet provides excellent cushioning for a softer sound. The cord model is wrapped with a harder finished material which produces a stronger percussive effect. The unwound models deliver maximum sound. With birch shafts for rigidity and consistency, they are favored by players who prefer extra reach without the added flexibility of rattan. All Custom mallets are 16″ long.
