What makes the new Tie Dye Edition gong friction mallet from Olli Hess?
To go new ways again and again is the basic principle of Olli Hess. The world of sounds is multifaceted – and we want to explore and use it in all its facets. In order to continuously expand our range and give you an even wider spectrum of sounds, we try out a lot and change our manufacturing processes and materials. The gong friction mallet Tie Dye Edition stands out not only visually from other gong friction mallets – especially in the sound it surprises you with new facets and even more variety. We have achieved this through an innovative manufacturing method based on thoughtful and careful craftsmanship.
The extravagant design
The batik look of the Tie Dye Edition gong friction mallet stands for uniqueness and individualism. We make each Tie Dye Edition gong reamer by hand – creating an individual batik pattern on each reamer that is just as unique. This makes each Tie Dye Edition gong friction mallet from Olli Hess unique – you decide if you prefer the blue-green batik pattern or the black-grey version. This way, you will get a gong friction mallet that will also suit your individuality.
An exceptional sound image
Not only do we break new ground visually with the Tie Dye Edition gong friction mallet, but the sound spectrum you can create with our friction mallets have also changed due to a new processing method.
In the manufacture of the rubbing head we use soft natural friction mallet particularly sustainable material that is biologically in harmony with the environment. We deliberately refrain from roughening the ball with our tools in this gong friction mallet. The soft surface of the ollihess Tie Dye Edition gong friction mallet thus allows for exceptionally beautiful and intense tones that can range from radiant, bright to deep, dark sounds, depending on the sound instrument and application. At the same time, inherent noise of the mallet is almost completely avoided.
Another way of production
Our Olli Hess gong friction mallet with batik look is made by a process specially developed by us, which distinguishes it from other gong friction mallets. During the processing we use pre-colored natural rubber. This is mixed naturally by careful rolling and thus receives its uniform coloring. Then we take small square pieces from the rolled mass and position them on top of each other in the baking pan. There they fuse in the oven and the unusual batik look is created.
We also use environmentally friendly and sustainable raw materials in the production of the Tie Dye Edition gong friction mallet. Each ollihess gong friction mallet is completely vegan made. All raw materials come from renewable sources and are preferably grown regionally. So we don’t compromise on the Tie Dye Edition gong friction mallet either. Not by the head, not by the stem.
The Tie Dye Edition gong friction mallet is available in different sizes and colors
Each size of the Tie Dye Edition gong friction mallet offers you an exceptional and unique sound. You can get the Tie Dye Edition gong friction mallet in the following sizes:
- Head ø: 30 mm
- Head ø: 40 mm
- Head ø: 50 mm
- Head ø: 60 mm
Which size is suitable for you depends on several factors. When making your decision, you should first and foremost consider which sound instrument you want to play with the Tie Dye Edition gong friction mallet and which sounds you mainly want to create. For singing bowls and small gongs, the reamers with a head diameter of 30 to 40 mm are very suitable. For gongs from 70-80 cm in diameter, the 60 mm diameter gong friction mallet is a perfect choice. The smaller the mallet head, the brighter the sounds you can create with it, as a rule.
