The Vic Firth M-27 RB Signature Vibraphone Mallets have undergone a cosmetic change and are now available as the mallets on the right of the photo above. They are essentially the same mallet (same core, material and number of wraps) but just made with VF's new ultra efficient machinery. This negates the need for the black stiching on the top and bottom of the older models. Check out the videos below to hear how they sound in a variety of situations. rb
