SV-10 is the smoothest model of the series. Labelled as Medium-Soft, this mallet will cover the entire register, but its potential is best experienced in the mid-low range of the vibes. The mallet is 4-5 grams heavier than the other three models of the Contemporary-Solo series. The weight, in combination with the head size, shape and smoothness, will produce an excellent, rich tone with a lot of fundament (no disturbing overtones). SV-10 is ideal for slower, jazzy or contemplative solo pieces, and certainly perfect as bass mallet in the left hand. Extra bonus: on Marimba you will get a better sound than with most „marimba mallets“ out there. Wrapped with practically indestructable synthetic blend yarn.
Use it as a set of four SV-10, the ideal combination as bass mallet with three SV-20, but also as a set of three SV-10 with a TOP SV-20 for clearer soprano melody lines.
