Constructed from the exact same materials as the BDFR, it simply has two of the same weighted maple balls and faux fur coverings on each end. The balance of this mallet makes it effortless to roll with one hand when necessary. Perfect for anyone playing in any sort of pit situation, this has been something we’ve been using for years in the Cleveland Orchestra and people have been calling me to borrow one every time they do Nutcracker or Bartók Sonata. Better balance and roll sound than anything else on the market right now.
The BD8 continues to be a best seller because of its versatility. The only double ended mallet in the line, it features identical cores on each end with a hard green felt on one end and soft German felt on the other.
