Soft, quiet, but articulate
Super soft, nearly silent, slurring articulation

I just ordered a set!!! I can not play late at night!

Which version did you show, LN1R or LN2R?
Where can I get those in Europe and at what price?
I think, the combination of your late nite mallets and my vibe beach towels would be the ultmate summer travel toy for all vibe players. :)
I would like to know, how your mallets sound on my towles layed on a table as substitute vibraphone.

Great for traveling! Is it available?

I answer you in my Summer-Toy post, as I do not want to kidnap Tony's mallet post.

Now I have a way to practice a little bit while I’m down in key west. Thanks again!

Yup, June 14th! Thanks :)
The mallets arrive on Monday, so I'll let you know how they work.

I got the mallets yesterday and they work great so far, although I'm a little concerned about the yarn wearing out quickly. Also, what is meant by "slurring articulation"?

i think it's classical talk. i don't know what it means. it's leigh's words and he's not a jazzer.
i hope the yarn lasts! let me know if there's a problem.

How about tying a little piece of knit fabric over the mallet head (like David in Berkeley showed us last weekend at your workshop? ) But not so it looks like a tiny T-shirt :)

I have been hitting them pretty hard the last few months, and so far, very little signs of wear.

....or is it?
Supposed to be a funny.
Great idea! Congrats.

Here's a nice plug for the new mallets: you can practice while your newborn baby sleeps!
Maybe a little hard on the back...

Not easy on the back, nope! :) Cool though! That's some important multitasking...

Another update on the mallets:
I have been playing with these almost exclusively for practicing the last couple of months. I really like the percussive sound they make. It makes "swinging" a lot of fun. I don't like them so much for four mallet playing. I find it really hard to get the articulation necessary for four voices. I also find pedaling a little tricky. Hitting the instrument like a drum with two mallets, no pedal, feels right. They are great fun and very friendly to other members of a household. I wonder whether there is any downside to playing with them a lot (over conventional mallets). They certainly feel different in the hands and response. I can't believe how loud the instrument sounds when I switch back, especially with my headphones/ear plugs out!
