Se-Mi's Go2 mallet is a light-weight (34 grams per stick) medium-hard model that works with her impressionistic and contemporary repertoire to enhance the graceful virtuosity of her approach to the marimba. It is built around a rubber-covered nylon disk and wrapped with a special wool and nylon blend of yarn.
