Two stars for the mallets themselves
I want to give them a significantly higher rating because I do live the way they sound with and without pedal in a vibe. I love how it will cut through the rest of a combo or big band when you need it to. What I don't love is the mallet shafts. I know they're supposed to be skinny but one pair I had gotten was incredibly flimsy and hard to control and the other was perfect, I often found myself using other mallets due to this difference.
If the shafts were made with a little more consistency as opposed to harsh differences like I have now I'd be fine
Well, now. The Jackson PMJs are made perfectly, with large heads and short sticks, and the instrument resonates wonderfully with them. I think I've given my self-education on the instrument a major bump forward with these mallets. The heads could be just a trifle smaller with no loss of resonance, but I have absolutely no complaint otherwise and will probably buy a couple of extra pair!
I only use them on medium to slow ballads but having said that,find myself staying with them ,sometimes for the whole set no matter what the piece.
