The Katarzyna Mycka Signature Series was developed to project maximum sound in orchestral and ensemble settings. Each of these weighted mallets is wrapped very tightly with two strands of synthetic yarn. The heads, tightly wrapped in Nylon, provide excellent articulation, while the heavy weight yields an immediate response from the keyboard that is required for ensemble and orchestra playing. This heavier weighted mallet brings out the warmth of the marimba by physically activating the fundamental frequencies in the bars. Katarzyna's series consists of seven models in varying hardness, available with both birch or rattan handles.
