Vic Firth American Custom Timpani Mallets
The American Custom Timpani Mallets reflect Vic's fifty years of experience as Solo Timpanist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Each mallet is turned from a single piece of rock maple, which eliminates a core that could rattle and the need for a screw on washer to secure the head. Coupled with round seamless heads, they produce bigger and brighter sounds.

T3 Staccato Features:
