“What are the best mallets to use?”

There are too many variables involved to answer this question in this sort of a format. What is your budget? Which instrument are you playing? What kind of music are you playing? Are you recording in a studio, playing in the school band, or giving your Senior Recital in a 750-seat concert hall?

There are many fine mallet manufacturers out there. I’m an endorser of Mike Balter mallets, but there are other great mallets out there from Malletech, Innovative Percussion, Vic Firth, and Deschler, among others.
