Each Percussionist should have the following materials:
Malletech Becker Blues (BB34) or Innovative Percussion James Ross (IP902)
Med Hard (IP300)
For more serious percussionists
Robert Van Sice
Medium Hard (VIC-115)
I suggest getting two pairs of either to work on four mallet literature
Innovative Concert Series
CT3 Medium General (INN-CT3)
Innovative BT7 Ultra Staccato (INN-BT7)
For more serious percussionists, they should have General, Staccato, and legato mallets.
Vic Firth SD1 sticks
A pitch pipe, F-F or C-C
A stick bag
Students who are serious about percussion should also consider picking up their own accessory instruments when it is financially feasible.
