Carbon Fiber Timpani Mallets
Black Swamp Carbon Fiber Timpani Mallets offer all the performance aspects of bamboo plus the added benefits of pitch matched shafts and zero chance of splitting. We use high quality German felt, meticulously hand-sewn and fitted to each core. The entire set of Black Swamp timpani mallets will give you a broad sound pallet that is perfect for all genres of timpani repertoire.
Carbon fiber is consistently strait and round with exceptional feel and response. Diameters are 9/16" and 1/2" (CF5 & CF6).
A mixture of wood and leather cores, diameters and inner felts help produce pure, smooth tones.
High quality German felt is sewn by hand and fitted to each core for a precise fit.
Our set of seven mallets covers a spectrum of contrasting, sounds textures and dynamic possibilities.
Hard / Red
A wood core with a thin layer of exterior felt for an articulate mallet, but less aggressive than the super staccato (CF7) mallet.
Medium Hard / Green
A larger wood core and thicker layer of exterior felt for less initial attack than the CF1. Excellent all purpose rhythmic mallet.
General / Purple
Inner and exterior felt around a wood core produces a well balanced mallet suitable for both rhythmic and sustained passages.
Legato / Orange
Two layers of sewn felt over a wood core creates a mallet with a big, full sound. Excellent for more melodic passages.
Leather Legato / White
The leather core and cartwheel style felt helps produce seamless rolls and perform delicate passages more comfortably.
Light Legato / Red Felt
A thin layer of red felt over a leather core. Perfect for extreme articulation at softer dynamics, or less aggressive musical styles.
