      Hello! If you’re referring to the Liberty 1 mallets sold by Steve Weiss then I believe you will not be disappointed. I’ve not used these myself but have purchased keyboard mallets from this line, which is exclusive to Steve Weiss. The quality is excellent and the price unbeatable. I hope this helps.
      Thanks for visiting!
