The limited edition large ellipse is made from black Hornwood and is the largest and heaviest mallet we make. It provides an enormous fat and dark sound suitable for any Shostakovich symphony, providing massive power and projection in any size orchestra. Because of the elongated elliptical head shape, it makes wider contact with the bars and makes them ring slightly longer than other models and enhancing the fundamental and immediacy of the pitch. Yet another great addition to add to your choices of xylophone mallets to give you a much wider range of variety in your sound.
