The RAV Mallets Set can be used on any RAV Vast, Handpan, Mallet Harp or other melodic percussion instrument. The set includes 3 double headed mallets, making for three different sets of matching heads, as well as a hard case.
The bigger felt top is the softest of the three and produces a warm and very delicate sound. The smaller felt top is a little bit harder and provides a more sonorous sound. The rubber top, which is the hardest, creates a strong percussive sound. The rubber top has the closest sound to your fingers but with a more clear sound of the actual strike. The felt top has the softest touch and gives 100% of the note itself without the sound of a strike, while the smaller felt top is something between these two mallets. The RAV Mallet Set makes the RAV Vast sound less percussive and makes the instrument voice clearer and bell-like. Play two similar mallets or experiment with using 2 different tops at a time.
The mallets come in a hard case that will keep your mallets easy to store and transport. The case can easily be adjusted to your bag or the RAV case.
For whom the RAV mallets may work
The RAV Mallets will be a great help for the beginners who have recently started learning to play the RAV Vast. The mallets will help you to learn the sound of each drum separately from others and create some first simple note progressions.
The mallets imply a more meditative, slower playing style, which will be great for your meditation, sound-healing or mindful sessions.
Professionals who seek a new sound can get some interesting effects using the mallets. Playing with the RAV Vast mallets helps you isolate the harmonics in the note and vary the tonality of playing differently than your fingers. You can get the advantage of using this effect in electronic music or looping.
The RAV mallets provide you more mobility when you are playing more than one RAV Vast at a time. They can also give your hands a break when you are busking or have a long performance and will be a great add-on to the musician’s toolkit.
Colors may vary from what is shown in the photo and video as the manufacturer changes colors from time to time. However, the playability remains the same.
