I post here a mail that I sent to Tony this morning. He propose to post it at the forum to see if Mario could answer and you others too.
I just bought a MalletKat. Now it is in Miami and a friend of mine will bring it to me next wednesday. I've never play a malletKat so, I want to ask you about mallets. The "answer" (should I say reponse?) of the mallets, ¿is the same like in a Vibraphone?.. I mean, with soft, medium and hard mallets or birch and rattan. I suposse is very different to hit a metal bar or to hit a malletKat bar.
I used to play more marimba (I had a Marimba One) and I haven't played so much vibes in the last years. Never is so late!!!... I don't have vibes mallets at the moment. I live in Panamá where is impossible to find mallets. I have to buy 1 or 2 pairs. I remember that I liked "Provibes Series of Mike Balter". I know that the choice of mallets is a very personal stuff and if depends of taste and bla, bla... but ¿what you recommneded me for MalletKat?.
