Medium All Purpose Yarn Mallet for singing bowls
u N128 Medium All Purpose Yarn Mallet for singing bowls
For small and medium sized bowls
Stained wood handle with cotton yarn
Mallets with long handles and light heads are the easiest way to get full sound out of smaller singing bowls. The yarn covered head plays minimizes what musicians call “attack” so the sound plays more smoothly than tapping with a hard wood or leather ringing stick. The long handle gives you better control over the volume and makes it easy to ring multiple bowls. Being small and light it will not push your bowl around like the larger felt Nepali mallets.
This Mallet: Inexpensive medium yarn covered rubber mallet with a thin dark colored wooden handle. Individually made, they vary a bit in size and hardness. They also vary in the color of the wood, the photo with two mallets shows the range of colors you might get.
Contrast with precision mallets: This general purpose mallet is not tuned to accentuate different frequencies within a bowl. The handle is just a bit shorter than precision mallets.
