Vic Firth Rusty Burge Signature Series vibraphone mallet
Educator, performer and recording artist Rusty Burge is widely recognized for his unique musical voice on the vibraphone. “Your sound is what defines you as a player. Listeners are either drawn to it, or they aren’t,” states Rusty. “As a vibraphonist, your options for cultivating a unique sound are the instrument itself, your technique, and your mallets. It is of vital importance that the mallets work with you!”
Designed with both group and solo performance in mind, Rusty’s signature vibraphone mallet offers the ultimate uniformity of sound at all dynamic levels. “A lot of times when you’re playing with a group, you’re not in control of how loud the drummer plays. When you want to produce more sound, you shouldn’t lose the sound you want to get. That was my number one goal for these mallets.”
