Mallet head is 4" wide x 3.5" high
Handle is made of maple.
The Zildjian Gong Mallet is a great hard, yarn wrapped
mallet for gongs anywhere from about 26" to 48".
It all depends on how you play your gong.
This diamond head shape allows you more volume on a 26" or 28" gong,and more flavor on the larger gongs, versus one of the big block style mallet heads.
This is a great, tapping mallet.
DO NOT SWING THIS MALLET HARD AGAINST YOUR GONG.
