Freer Percussion products are well known around the world for being the most unique and creative designs, materials and covering techniques. It’s our goals to have FP remain first in its class and a clear leader in the orchestral percussion market.
I am constantly at the drawing board, creating and refining my products. See what’s new, what
we’re working on and what’s coming in the near future from FP.
The Duff 8 is an essential wood timpani mallet. Highest grade American hickory which is pre selected for weight and pitch before it’s even turned. Classic bulb shaped head for excellent head contact whether playing timpani flat or tilted. Laser engraved, hand sanded, hand pitched/weighed and six layers of finish. Recommended for any timpani passages/repertoire requiring wood sticks. Extremely hard.
The new M1 marimba mallets have come about after extensive testing and experimentation with core materials. All of that attention was focused on what would ultimately work best in the orchestra. Coincidentally this model has turned out to be an excellent general marimba mallet for anything! Because of it’s unique proprietary core material and hand wrapping, we have come up with something that is unlike anything else currently on the market. A “two toned” mallet which will sound warm and round up until the upper mezzo forte range, then begins to get brighter with the ability to cut easily at loud dynamics. Birch shafts with minimal finish layers and hand wound yarn. Not just for the orchestra! Sold in pairs.
TBD – Whether you are rolling or playing notes, you can now have immense dynamic control from any triangle in a split second simply by jumping from one beater head to the other. In particular, this beater enables you to play or roll and achieve a true forte/piano dynamic change effortlessly. Dynamic changes in either direction…loud to soft and soft to loud are very easy.
TBB – The new barrel headed brass beater is another excellent new addition to our triangle beater line up. The brass barrel head is 11 mm in diameter- a unique size and shape to anything else on the market. They speak instantly on any triangle and are capable of a very wide dynamic range.
G.H GREEN SIGNATURE SERIES XYLOPHONE MALLETS REV 2.0
1 1/8″ white/green proprietary dual durometer ball on 13″ rattan shaft. Rev 2.0 now includes an extended dual durometer core and sound even closer to George Hamilton Green’s originals.
“I’m thrilled to have entrusted this George Hamilton Green mallet project to Tom Freer and Freer PERCUSSION. I’ve known Tom for many years and know that his products have always stood for quality and detail instead of mass production numbers. The signature mallets are modeled after George Hamilton Green’s originals that the family loaned to Tom for the project. The George Hamilton Green publications that Freer is putting out exclusively, represent the artistic integrity and high standards that our family historically exemplifies and we look forward to more future projects.” -LEW GREEN
Short-handled carbon fiber mallets. Cord wrapped in three different hardnesses.

Returning after a few years of absence comes the #9 flip stick with felt on one end and wood on the other, and the #10 chamois.
I’m thrilled to announce the arrival of the publication end of Freer Percussion. My printed music will be focused on out of print and rare xylophone music from what I call the “Xylohpone Players Archival Collection” as well as some new melodic timpani solos I have written and other things.
Please check in frequently as there are many works in process and the site will be updated weekly with new releases. As always, exclusively available direct from Freer Percussion Publications only.
