Begin building your mallet with your choice head shape - Ball, Mushroom, or Wheel. The heads are cast directly onto the handle. No glue, staples, or nails are ever used.

Customize your mallet head weight with your choice of Lighter, Standard, or Heavier. Lighter heads allow for more speed and control, but less fundamental. Heavier heads provide more fundamental tone, but less speed on longer handles.
The core hardness affects fundamental tone and articulation characteristics.
Customize your core sound with a finely tuned articulation. Calm - Cool - Clean - Clear - Crisp. Each head hardness allows for range of three articulations and scales as the hardness increases from Soft to Hard.
BlueHaus offers a complete range of handle options for your custom build. Hickory, Birch, Plastic, and Rattan options.
Standard handle length is 42cm for Birch and Hickory handles, and 40cm for Rattan handles. Longer handles will make the mallet head feel heavier. Shorter handles allow for more speed and control.
We use long fiber wet spun hemp to wrap your custom built mallets. It’s natural, strong, and incredibly durable.
Review your mallet build and hear it on marimba and vibraphone. You can go back to any step and make adjustments.
