Solid rosewood blocks produce a clean, crisp sound in three graduated tones. They can be used individually or as a set, (like Temple Blocks). Each set comes with a single wooden mallet. Use the ball end for a louder sound, or the shaft for a lighter sound. An optional pair of rubber mallets (MLTR1) allows use of both hands for more intricate rhythms, as well as a slightly mellower tone. Each block is 2 3/4" wide x 1 1/2" tall; lengths are 6 1/2", 7 1/8" , and 7 7/8".
