Stafford Signature Mallets

Stafford Signature Mallets Image
Developed in consultation with renowned handbell composer/director Kevin McChesney and Megan Reishus of the Forte Handbell Quartet, the Stafford Signature Series of Mallets are designed by ringers for ringers. Mallets in each range are designed by experts to protect your bells with normal use, while providing the musician with optimum response. Additionally, the mallets allow musicians to achieve the finest possible musical tone from each casting.

Shafts for the low bass mallets are 14 inch solid fiberglass with a comfort grip handle for greater control and less ringer fatigue.

Shafts for the C4-B5 range bells feature a 14 inch hollow fiberglass shaft, making our mallets a full ounce lighter than other brands. Shafts are coated with a protective rubber sheath for maximum ringer comfort and protection.

Shafts for the C6 and above range bells feature a 12 inch hollow fiberglass shaft coated with a protective rubber sheath, both lightening the weight and shortening the handle giving upper treble musicians more control while also eliminating fatigue.

These mallets have been thoroughly tested in real performance and rehearsal situations for over a year by children, youth, and adult ensembles. They offer benefits to musicians of all ages. The lighter weight is ideal for children, teens and adults. The balance and response help provide consistency and a clear tone in ostinato passages and long malleted sections of music.
The Stafford Signature Series is the official mallet of the National Honors Handbell Ensemble and the Stafford Regional Handbell Society's 9 ringing ensembles.

Pictured here, mallets are wrapped in all black durable nylon for the battery bass through battery treble mallets. Low bass mallets are wrapped in premium wool yarn. Other colors, or mixed colors are available at no extra charge. Contact us for options.
