Incorporate our NEW light weight 55 mallet head onto a 2B maple stick. We then cut the mallet head flat on opposing sides. On one side we create a cavity and on one remaining round section we embed a 5/8 inch nylon bead. The cavity creates a unique clacking sound on cymbal surfaces and a very big punchy back beat on the snare. The bead provides cymbal definition. Whereas the opposite rounded side responds more like a standard Orb X model. The Flatheads can create a variety of unique functional sounds and make a great addition to any drummers arsenal of drumming implements.
