Abstract

Mallets for stick games and percussion instruments are currently produced with differently soft mallet heads consisting of a core (b), a jacket (a) and a mallet handle (d). The mallet handle is always made of wood or a material with a similar degree of hardness and elasticity. The result of this is that when the mallet hits the instrument, a hard sound that is usually unlike the stroke by the mallet head is produced. The problem: This hard mallet stroke sound is required in numerous compositions, but a soft mallet stroke sound is desired in many other compositions. The goal is to find a solution that allows you to quickly switch between the two sound options without having to use different sets of clubs. With the easy-to-open mallet cuff (c), the mallet handle now has similar properties to the mallet head. The mallet coat. To assimilate the sound, the material of the cuff is matched to that of the mallet head and, like the mallet head, can consist of different types of yarn and wool. Various synthetic materials such as rubber or nylon are also conceivable. A knitted gauntlet can be easily and quickly pulled off elastically on different mallets, and the mallet produces a hard mallet strike sound again. The cuff for the mallet handle is ideal for playing on mallet instruments such as the marimba or vibraphone, since a hard mallet stroke sound is often undesirable here. Almost an infinite number of variations through the processing of different materials enable its use as a differentiated design tool in this area of music. A gauntlet attached to it and simply does not function as a mallet. I especially like that it can be pulled up quickly and easily on the handle, and can be removed just as quickly if necessary. At the stick position directly on the head of the stick, it is mainly held by the centrifugal forces that act when playing.

Description

  • It is known that the impact of the mallet handle according to claim 1 has a hard attack sound result. Many composers have incorporated this effect into their compositions for bar instruments. Since a mallet stick according to claim 1 must be made of a material which is stable enough to withstand the force of the beats, light enough to be operable for the instrumentalist, and hard enough to produce a hard stop sound if required by the composer, Wood or plastic is the means of choice. As a result, it is not possible to create a soft sound with the beater handle stop. Since the impact of the mallet handle is often unavoidable in technically demanding compositions, these hard beater stalk stops are also heard here. These are perceived by listeners as extremely disturbing. But since composers in many pieces play exactly with this effect, it makes little sense to produce mallets with a soft mallet, since this type of mallet is very inflexible in its use.
  • The specified in claim 1 invention is based on the problem of being able to produce both required Schlägelstielanschlagsklänge flexible and fast with one and the same mallet.
  • This problem is solved by the invention cited in claim 1 (cuff).
  • The advantages achieved by the invention are, in particular, that an extremely fast switching between many sound variations is possible without having to have a large assortment of different mallets ready. The cuff does not need to be extra fastened because the centrifugal forces acting during the game keep them at the desired position behind the mallet head. By using different materials such mallets can also be used very creative. For the first time, the instrumentalist can combine beater stroke sounds with drumhead beat sounds.
  • An advantageous embodiment of the invention is given in claim 2. The development according to claim 2 makes it possible to attach to the cuff small bells or rattles. As a result, a normal mallet can be converted into a striking mallet in just a few simple steps.
  • Embodiments are illustrated in the drawing and will be described in more detail below. The following figures serve as exemplary embodiments:
  • 1 shows the mallet with cuff according to claim 1 wherein
    • a) Coat (usually made of cotton, wool or synthetic yarn)
    • b) mallet core
    • c) cuff
    • d) mallet handle
  • 2 shows the impact of the mallet on the instrument
  • 3 shows the impact of the bestowed according to claim 1 mallet on the instrument
  • 4 shows the training with little bell according to claim 2
  • 5 shows the training with rattles according to claim 2
  • 6 shows the cuff in knitted form (knitting pattern: "right stitch") The commercial mallet for stick instruments consists of three parts. The core of the mallet head is made of different hard materials, depending on the sound he is to achieve later. Wood cores, cores made of various plastics, metal cores and rubber cores are currently being used. In some cases, the core also consists of several layers of different material. Gladly, the actual core of the mallet head is covered with a rubber jacket, before then the yarn is wound as a real coat around it. In 1 For reasons of simplicity, only the actual core with yarn sheath is shown. If one with such a mallet the Garnmantel ( 1 , a)), and anything else that surrounds the core is removed, the beater head core ( 1 , b)) and mallet ( 1 , c)) very similar. If one now wants to make the mallet sound similar to the encased core, so if one wants to assimilate its sound, it has to be provided with a cloak as well. The cuff ( 1 , d)) has the same function as a mallet, but can be quickly and easily removed from the mallet if needed. The cuff is a sleeve whose inner diameter must be so large that it can be easily put on the mallet without slipping back down. Since currently are mallets with very different mallet diameters on the market, only elastic materials such. B. knitted or crocheted Baumwall-, wool or synthetic yarn and leather or rubber in question. Most suitable are yarns that can be woven, knitted or crocheted into an elastic composite. These fabrics are on the one hand very advantageous because they are similar to the material of the wrapped with yarn mallets, on the other hand, mallets of very different diameter due to their extreme elasticity, without them on it and slide out. Applicable are all common knitting techniques such. Eg "right-hand stitches" ( 6 ) or the so-called "patent pattern". At woven, knitted or crocheted cuffs can be easily make configurations in the sense of claim 2. As 4 shows, for example, small bells can sew, which resonate with each mallet movement. Also are small rattles ( 5 ), which also resonate when the mallet is set in motion attachable. The big advantage over commercial effect mallets, such. B. the "Maraca Mallet" 1

    , is also here that the so-extended effect cuff can be removed if necessary, the actual mallets but can continue to be used. The length of the cuff is variable; but it can only be so long that the player is not prevented from gripping the unassembled stick handle end (since the cuff is held to some extent by the centrifugal force acting at play, directly behind the mallet head, grasping at the cuff would be the opposite cause and the mallet would slip through the centrifugal forces from the cuff).
