The TM2 general mallets are part of the two-mallet series offered from Encore Mallets. Most mallets today are developed with four-mallet literature in mind; Bill Patterson, percussionist with the San Antonio Symphony, and Dan Lidster, founder of Encore Mallets, have developed two models of mallets specifically designed for two mallet playing (TM1, TM2). These TM2s have a thin rattan handle with a small weighted yarn covered head. These work great for state level competitions as well as professional playing. The TM2 is also a great choice for the Creston Marimba Concerto.
