XEB-28 Black Ebony
Pure Xylophone sound. Best quality Ebony wood, purchased from traditional German string maker. Black Ebony heads are the heaviest and purest of the wood one can get. Expensive and difficult to find, our heads are turned out of selected quality square rods. Ebony is hard wood, with dense structure. After experimenting with various sizes, we selected 28 mm as an ideal combination of balance, weight and overall feel. XEB-28 are constructed as absolute top quality professional mallets, but their qualitative value will be appreciated only where pure sound of wood is desired.
XEB-28 has strong, crisp, wooden and loud sound. 28 mm also contributes positively for piano playing by producing as much of a fundament sound as possible. Perfectly crafted, hand fine sanded and waxed. Rattan hand wrapped with bordeaux yarn. This is an exclusive top model for xylophone for the pure-wood sound lovers only.
We do NOT recommend any other usage but on wooden xylophone bars.
