Promark Ensemble Mallets
Percussion instructor and shop owner Herb Brochestein founded Promark back in 1957, in Houston, Texas where it's still based today! Since it's first years, Promark has became a widely known stick company, being the first company to introduce Japanese Shira-Kashi white oak into the American market, successfully becoming the only company to market oak sticks in the United States, and, in 2011, they became part of D'Addario. More recently, they have chosen to use non-endangered wood and a "green" finishing process, this makes their sticks and manufacturing process safer to each of their players and to the environment!
The Promark Ensemble Series Hard Rattan Mallets are vibraphone mallets that feature a round rubber core with a thick layer of latex, on a rattan handle. The rubber and latex offer sounds that are full on both vibraphone and marimba! The rattan handles provide necessary flexibility while remaining durable enough for demanding performances. With maximum articulation comes great response in the highest register! Promark's graduated Ensemble series has plenty of choices for the perfect mallet and is a great choice for percussion ensembles, marching applications and marimba choirs.
