Golden Brass Light


Brass heads are classic among the glockenspiel,  starting with  Mozart’s  excerpts and going  anywhere, where clear metal sound with  fundament pitch  is needed. Of course you will not get  same volume as with 25 mm GDU weighted heads, but  brass has is own mystery  when implemented properly.  We love this mallets and they ae also ideal for Crotales as well. 
GBR-15 is the smaller of the two brass models that Schlagkraft offers, –  and surely the one used more. It is typical  metal-on-metal glock sound,  and it is a must, when such „Christmas“ glock is requested.  Brass is much softer than a steel bars of the glockenspiel so it will get slightly bent with a years of usage and then be „beaten into a form“…. This mallet will than last forever.

CROTALES  very much recommended,  works perfect on crotales.  Xylophone usage:  no go : -)
