Bamboo shaft, extra hard staccato wood core with hard felt cloth cover
The core shape, hard cloth/felt covering, and high-quality bamboo shaft give you a staccato mallet with a full yet tight and clean sound. Great for a wide variety of things from Haydn all the way to Prokofiev…try these on Prokofiev 6. Even excellent on percussion for tom toms and bongos.

Tonkin felt large cartwheel
Soft German felt thick covering soft stick with 1mm base felt on 1.5” x ½” felt core. This is basically the Tonkin version of my BCS stick. Has more weight in the front and even more bottom to the sound. Excellent roller and a must have for any Tchaikovsky, Mahler or Bruckner symphonies. Recommended for the intro to Wagner Funeral Music and Strauss Death and Transfiguration as well.
1" diameter wood disc with multiple felt layers and very thin soft German felt ball cover. Very bright and clean sound without being slappy and harsh. No voicing is done to this model. Warmer sound than #2, a great all around hard stick with a pretty sound.
