The Vic Firth M232 Andrew Markworth Signature marimba mallet is a hard mallet that is articulate and bold with great tone.
As an instructor, arranger, composer and show designer, Andrew Markworth burst onto the marching percussion scene at a very young age! His talents have been showcased with some of the very best ensembles within the DCI, WGI and BOA arenas. Most recently, his design and instruction helped propel the Carolina Crown Drum and Bugle Corps to a silver-medal finish at the 2009 DCI World Championships.
The new Andrew Markworth Signature Series features 6 models-3 designed for marimba and 3 for vibraphone. The marimba mallets feature long birch shafts (11/32" diameter) which increase the articulation and sound projection. The mallets are wrapped in 100% synthetic yarn and double-stitching provide maximum durability and weather resistance. The vibe mallets feature thick rattan shafts and are also wrapped in 100% synthetic yarn, providing added warmth to the sound with maximum durability and weather resistance.
