IP804 Mark Ford Hard Legato Marimba Yarn Mallets

The IP804 Innovative Percussion Mark Ford Hard Legato Marimba Yarn Mallets

The Mark Ford Legato series IP804 hard yarn marimba mallets are constructed of quality materials suited exclusively for producing warm legato tones at all volume levels. The IP804 has a rubber core wrapped by softer than normal yarn to minimize sound usually heard from the contact of the mallet to the instrument. Unfinished birch handles have a texture that is ideal for situations in which extra grip is needed. The Mark Ford Legato series has a much more soft and supple sound when compared to the Mark Ford Strong Legato series.

About the Mark Ford Mallets Signature Series

The unfinished natural birch handles on the Signature Mark Ford marimba mallets allow the player additional control in demanding performance situations. In conjunction with Mark Ford, Innovative Percussion has designed this line of mallets to meet the needs of today's contemporary marimba soloist.

Legato Mallet Features:
  • Rubber cores to create a full, rich tone and warm fundamental
  • Unfinished natural birch handles
  • Extra-soft yarn wrap for minimal contact sound

These four new models are an expansion of the popular mallet series designed to the specifications of marimba soloist and percussion educator Mark Ford. This series began with the previous addition of the IP800 to his original series, now renumbered as IP811. This series of four mallets features larger rubber cores for a full tone and stronger fundamental, while still using an extra-soft yarn to produce legato tone at all dynamic levels. These new models also feature natural birch handles, allowing the player additional control in demanding performance situations.
