50/50 covering of soft German on one side and 3mm hard German on the other with no base felt on 1.5” x 3/8” convex felt core. First stick of its kind in the industry like the BD1F Mahler 3 mallets using my double seam technique. Gives you the ability to change from clear articulation to smooth rolls in a split second. A necessity for many Sibelius Symphonies and the ending of Brahms 1. Try this model for Mozart 39 as well to get you from the transition of long soft roll to rhythm.
Head size : 1.5” x 3/8” core Length: 14.5” Weight: 34 – 37 grams (per stick + or -)
