Has a wide timbral range and has the potential cutting power of a much harder mallet when pushed to high dynamic levels.
Michael is head of the percussion program at the Eastman School of Music and is internationally respected as a marimba virtuoso, composer and teacher. The Michael Burritt Series is built around 1-1/8-inch diameter natural rubber cores. All of the models also have one or more additional layers of latex rubber for a more complex, multi-toned response pattern. All models are wrapped with a custom synthetic yarn that has been designed to have great durability and just a touch of contact “chiff” for the cutting power Michael requires. All models feature select birch shafts.
