Hello world of percussionists!

31 Jul

Welcome to Doublemalletgrips. This is a web site about double-mallet grips used for playing musical instruments like the xylophone and especially the marimba and the vibraphone. Double-mallet grips are also known as four-mallet grips although the grips in question actually control only two mallets; the name “four-mallet grip” refers to the normal practice of using two mallets in each hand which gives a total number of four mallets.

    Hi! Great page with loads of useful info! You could have pictures of each grip opened wide too, as there now is only pictures when they are quite closed. The lack of pictures is confusing because you can actually see very little difference berween, for example, the Burton grip and it’s relatives.

      Hello, Mauri, and thanks for commenting and your appreciation of Doublemalletgrips! Although Doublemalletgrips is perhaps the most comprehensive overview of double-mallet grips it is not a dissertation like e.g. Peter Sadlo’s Die Kunst des Schlagens. However, if you would like to contribute to the site with pictures showing the grips in other ways, I would be very interested in your material and perhaps also publish it here. Please let me know if you would like to contribute in that manner.
