NJZ-7 Canary Strong Cut
NJZ-7, is the hardest model in Zivkovic series and together with model “NJZ-6 Silver Sharp” belongs to the harder side if the sound. Zivkovic series has three major groups: for general performance (Nr. 3, 4 and 5) two models for SOFTER area (nr. 1 & 2) and models njz6 & 7 are for energetic, harsh, cut-through the orchestra or percussion ensemble, especially when marimba has a solo part.
NJZ-7 will carry the sound of marimba bars far out, and still have relatively rich fundamental note of each bar. Use this model especially in right hand when you need to come through the big orchestra AND TO STILL HAVE SOME GOOD Sound of the marimba and not sounding like bad xylophone. Except for the lowest octave, NJZ-7 will do better than most others “very hard” mallets available on the market today.
NJZ-7 is available on perfect thicker rattan, or on hand sanded 8.8mm strong cedar shafts. It has best possible projection while still bringing some “body” in high octaves of the marimba.
Best choice for K. Abes prism rhapsody and other two mallets passages with orchestra.
NJZ-7 will well fit as top mallet of three NJZ-6 or in a combinations 5-6-6-7. It will cut through the hall like canary yellow in a jungle (of sounds), therefore its name. It is wrapped in extremely durable synthetic mixture zivkovic-yarn, for minimalizing contact noise.
