Adapted Mallet

Adapted Mallet

What is it?

A covering for the head of a mallet.

Where is it found?

The music room, or bring your own!

How do I use it?

Put material to cover the head of your drum sticks or mallets to help reduce the noise level in the classroom. There are silicone or rubber “practice heads”  that you can buy to put on your drumsticks or DIY by adding some duct tape, foam, cloth, cork stopper, etc. to the tip of the mallet to muffle the sound. For bucket drumming, you can also add a sheet of silicone to the top of your bucket to reduce the volume of the drum.
