Well made, but can be improved on for precision

I liked this gong mallet for my instrument. I would hope for a more refined build. The ball could be better balanced in relation to the fiberglass stick, and the silicone ball made more smoother without the ridge joint.
Will buy another set when improved in quality.
Thank you for your offering.

Perfect bought

Everything was Ok: Price, Shipping....and great mallets. 100% satisfied.

Small in size but large in effect

These hard-to-locate rubber gong mallets work beautifully, and improve with your own, learned techniques. Exactly as described. Well done.

Awesome company

Gong shop Is great, super fast shipping, Awesome customer service. For such a low price these rubs are sweet!

better than expected

Have 2 gongs...a medium wind and a big chau...and they both emit amazing sounds with the 3 sizes of rub mallets. Think they are a good buy for the price, especially since you get 3...and the wide spectrum of sounds you can get with the different sizes. They might not last forever, but would happily replace them. Have you seen how much you can end up paying for just one flumie?
