I have hundreds of sticks, brushes, mallets, beaters… you name it – and my studio is not that large. One question for all percussive friends and colleagues: How do you keep your mallets organized? In cases, stands on the wall, boxes, bags? How? I have kept them in large plastic boxes, but it’s impossible to find a mallet at the bottom of the box, without having to spread them in the floor (and becoming increasingly anguished with the mess…). Looking forward to your feedback and help! Cheers!

  1. I have a bunch of these hanging on my wall and on my marimba: http://www.steveweissmusic.com/product/liberty-i-mallet-bag-01m/drum-stick-mallet-bag

    So I have the mallets and sticks I use regularly (and semi-regularly) in those, and the sticks I almost never use in cardboard boxes.

    But yeah, I can definitely relate to your problem…

  2. Thanks Anders – that’s exactly what I do. I just had my good friend Carlos Augusto send me a design for something very cool to hang on the wall. Want a copy via email?

  3. Yes, please!

    I actually enjoy going through my mallet collection from time to time and try to organize them. It never really works out, though… :-P

  4. Sending you the file now – I used to enjoy going through my mallet collection. Used to… not anymore :-)

  5. Thanks!

    This is definitely something to look into.
