Sean Hooper B3 'Mozart' Series Timpani Mallets - Large
For precision without weight, this stick is perfect. It is 28mm across, with a small wood wheel centre and a single layer of felt, matched with lightweight bamboo handles. This is the largest of three similarly constructed sticks, for soft, precise yet energetic playing, e.g. Baroque and early Classical. B1 – B3 are very helpful in boomy Church acoustics.

The handle diameter of the sticks range from 8mm up 11mm. The thickness is broadly based on the head size, but there is no set diameter which is alway used for each model. This way there is enough variation for a timpanist to choose the model he wants and then find the handle size that suits best.
With Seán’s trademark superb bamboo handles, this range offers a selection of other heads, for specialist applications.
