Will James, Principal Percussionist for the St. Louis Symphony 

Knowing which mallets to use during a particular passage of music can be extremely difficult, especially if you aren't a percussionist. However, Will James has done an exceptional job explaining his selection process within his Blog "How to Choose a Mallet."

 

After reading that blog entry, take a second to check out his other posts regarding percussion performance. Will James is truly one of the best percussionists in our field today and his posts are on my "must read" list every time he updates. Click here for a link to his other blog posts.
