I'm looking for suggestions regarding vibe mallets. Been using older sets of Malletech DF16's and DF12's for quite a while. I've recently tried Vic Firth M38's (Saindon), Innovative Percussion DF30's and DF30L's and Balter TM 46R's. None of which feel or sound exactly right to me. What I'm in search of are mallets the have the weight of the Saindon M38's, the tone (core hardness and yarn wrap) somewhere in between the IP DF30's and my old Malletech DF12's?
Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated! No stores in my area stock mallets of this type and not being able to try before you buy can get a bit costly!
