Traded my vibes for a marimba so I no longer need my vibe mallets.

ALL RATTAN HANDLES.

Mike Balter 22R Medium Hard
My most used and most liked.
Mike Balter 23R Medium
REALLY GOOD SHAPE. I didn't use them as much.
Mike Balter 24R Soft
Rattan shows wear toward the mallet end due to storing them by hanging on the vibe bars.
Mike Balter 62R Medium Hard
Malletech Dave Samuels DS 18 Hard
DS18 Heads are Great. Paint is chipped due to storing them by hanging them on the vibe bars.
I just never really took a liking to the mallets.
That is black tape on the bottom. Paint was really slippery when my hands got sweaty.

I looked up everything online. This is about $350 worth of mallets.
Asking $150.00 and I'll cover shipping CONUS and eat the PP fees. Willing to ship over borders with a little help.

Is it the price or the rattan?

I know Marimba players prefer the birtch handles, but I thought we had more vibe players here that would be interested.

I could be talked into breaking them up if someone only wants one set.

You might try one of the facebook groups. More mallet players there.

I normally just use FB to keep in contact with out of state relatives and friends. I haven't really gotten into any of the groups. Are there good ones you recommend?

Pre Saint Patrick's Day bump.

There's a set of Green Mallets here. Everyone needs a set of green mallets for St. Patrick's Day!


Anyone want them for $150.00?

I have not played mallet keyboards in years..............when I did, it was usually marimba.
