40 years of Schlagwerk!

In August 1982 Gerhard Priel started his company Schlagwerk in Gingen an der Brenz.
For 40 years, Schlagwerk has stood for German craftsmanship and sound innovations in percussion instruments.
Nothing has changed in this respect to this day.
In 2022, we want to expand the sound spectrum for musicians, therapists and sound enthusiasts with new instruments.
Unfortunately, due to various bottlenecks, this will be somewhat spread out over this anniversary year.

This mallet is for Gongs and other large drums where heavy impact is needed, but yet with a soft attack. So this mallet offers 250g weight with a soft Felt head.
