All the specialized synthetic material makes these one of the lightest all-purpose mallets. Great for pieces with a lot of notes to get through.
Pro Bright sound on entire range
Doesn't sound harsh/clinky on the lower octaves while still letting high octaves sing. Very articulate and clear tones.
Con Wears out relatively quickly
Due to the special, flat yarn, the mallets will get worn out and lose some of its original spring. That being said, the yarn will flatten over time instead of ripping, so worn out M114s can substitute harder mallets and still be used.
