  • Item Details

    The Innovative Percussion Mark Ford Strong Legato series IP813 medium hard yarn marimba mallets feature large rubber cores to produce a rich, full fundamental across the range of the instrument, while an extra-soft yarn wrapping allows for legato playing across various octaves.

    They have a little more articulation in the middle to upper ranges due to its slightly harder rubber core. The IP813s feature unfinished birch shafts for additional texture and grip.

    These mallets are great when you want a softer sound but still need that little bit of articulation.

    • Great sounding mallets, with good weight!

    • These mallets have started to be my go to recommendation for MS and HS students since they are easy to grip and sound great in almost all areas of the marimba. These are good medium-hard mallets to start a young marimbist's mallet collection. They do fray pretty quickly, which makes their price tag a little steep, but the sound and initial quality is great!

    • These mallets are by far my favorite mallets i've ever used. The produce a perfect tone on any marimba. When you need that perfect chord for 4 mallets, these are the ones.
