Jim Wunderlich Series   •   Diversity Series

The mallets in the Diversity Series were designed by the Blue Devils' percussion staff to cater to a variety of players by featuring graduated vibraphone mallets and graduated marimba mallets designed for use on synthetic marimbas as well as rosewood. This line is perfect for indoor or outdoor ensembles seeking clarity, articulation, and a mallet than can hold up to any musical demand while still maintaining a true, fundamental tone from the keyboard.
