The Dragonfly Veg Tan bass drum mallets are constructed of 6-8 layers of thick veg-tanned saddle leather on a hand-turned, tapered oak handle. The discs are sanded on the lathe to give them a rounded profile. These mallets function in much the same way as a standard chammy covered sticks, but have a fuller, darker sound and also never need rewrapping. The small sticks are great for fast, athletic passages where maximum articulation is required. They’re slightly heavier than the average “Rite of Spring” sticks, are very well suited to that excerpt and have a HUGE sound. SOLD AS A PAIR.
