Golden Brass Heavy
Brass heads are classic among the glockenspiel, starting with Mozart’s excerpts and going anywhere, where clear metal sound with fundament pitch is needed. GBR-18 is the bigger of our two brass models, and just 3 mm bigger heads make a huge difference. Wherever the single clear rich pitch with a long sustain is needed, this is the right place to use this mallet. On Crotales GBR-18 will also bring lot of fundament and with approx 9-10 gramms more weight than GBR-15, it will „shake“ the bar or crotale perfectly, that you will get a long sustain combined with clear fundament.
GBR-18 brings more of that is typical brass-on-metal glock sound, and your single stroke on crotale (or Glock bar) at the end of some musical phrase will be the BEST served with this mallet. Brass is much softer than a steel bars of the glockenspiel so head will get slightly „beaten up“ with a years of usage, bringing you ideal form that fits 100% your performing angle. No other mallets become so personal as Brass mallets after many years of usage.
CROTALES very much recommended, works perfect for slow single strokes on crotales. Xylophone usage: no go : -)
