Mike Balter Friction Mallets

I  like to use the analogy of chocolate to compare Mike Balter friction mallets with Bear Love friction mallets.

Everyone loves Easter Bunny chocolate. It is fun and yummy... and very affordable. That is how I describe the Mike Balter gong friction mallets. They make fun whale sounds, other sounds and they are inexpensive.

Bear Love friction mallets are like the luxurious chocolate truffles made by hand. Smooth, creamy and very expensive.... but oh so worth every penny.

Bear Love mallets create a smooth rich tone.


Both kinds of chocolate are great, just as both kinds of friction mallets are great. 

They just create different qualities of sound.
