Steve Weiss Mallet Workshop


Does any player here use a foot switch to turn the motor on and off? I just want the motor on during certain parts of a song, and I find that reaching over with my hand to turn the motor on/off is just not feasible. However, using one foot to pedal and the other foot to turn the motor on/off seems a bit clumsy. Or maybe I could somehow put the motor on/off switch on the top of the frame for quicker access. Any thoughts appreciated.

They have a switch on top of the side of the frame you can tap with a mallet.

MalletKAT has similar controls for any parameter of the sound you want.

So... It can be done.
