Incorporate our light weight Orb-X 45B 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 1/2 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 fulcrum area on each stick is indexed so the player can easily identify the various striking options.
