All three of these mallets use a unique brass core to enhance the fundamental tone. The DD10R is a Polyball xylophone mallet that is safe for rosewood yet still produces a sound big enough to cut through any ensemble. It is great for soloists as well as ensembles. All of the mallets in this series produce a big sound with lots of fundamental tone, yet are still light enough for playing faster passages.
