Sean Hooper BP2 Student Timpani Mallets - Baize Very Hard
Covered in a double layer of hard baize felt, this stick is still very hard, but makes less contact-noise than the BP1, with slightly less attack. It is centred on a wooden wheel, and measures 28.5mm across. Lightweight bamboo handles complete this stick. Excellent for much of the brass band repertoire.
Characteristics: Very Hard, Less Contact Noise Than Wood.

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.
Covering all the types of stick a student timpanist should need, without compromising on quality..
