Here's a clip from when I was at Mike's factory. I thought I posted this here but I can't find it.
Mike Balter is a member now of vibesworkshop.com!
If you don't know Mike he's just the most fun, easy going, coolest guy and knows more about mallets then probably anyone on the planet. He's a real stick meister.
He has done SO much for the mallet world. We're lucky to have him!!
He said he'll answer any mallet questions he can, so if you have any questions feel free to post here.
WELCOME MIKE!! YOU DA MAN!
