Our Freer “Dresdner Series #4” with a maple wood core on 1/3 tapered premium carbon fiber shafts.
Warm, clear and round sound with no contact noise and a “tweener” from Dresdner 4 cork and the Dresdner 5. A few grams heavier and warmer in sound from its cork version because of its maple core. Good choice for Finlandia and many other excerpts because there’s just enough felt to roll nicely but not so much that you feel the need to articulate through all the felt. Minimally voiced.
Hickory shaft, convex felt core extra hard felt cloth cover, staccato mallet. Also known as “Freer greens” these have now found their way into hundreds of timpani players cases and have become a standard for nearly 1000 customers.
Tonkin shaft with convex felt core and extra hard felt cloth cover. Great staccato mallet. Also known as “Freer greens” these have now found their way into hundreds of timpani players cases and have become a standard for nearly 1000 customers.
Soft German felt general stick with 1mm base felt on 1.5” x ½” cork core. Just hard enough for minimal articulation and soft enough to still roll with. A perfect stick for Beethoven 5 transition to the fourth movement. Also great for Strauss Burlesque.
Head size : 1.5” x ½” core
