Steve Weiss Mallet Workshop


Most Vibraphones Are Made Using Rivets. Here's the problem.

Rivets loosen and get noisy. The omega uses stainless steel nuts and bolts. It's so much quieter. 

This is a musser. I like playing mussers and am glad to play them when I travel, but they make noise.

Team Omega said to Malletech, that that can't happen to the Omega. So there are no rivets on malletech instruments. 

Before you buy a new instrument ask if they use rivets. 

Kenny Werner Talks About the book "Effortless Mastery"

If you haven't heard about this book, check this out. 

There is a lineage of books here, a tree. 

It all starts with Zen and Art or Archery, goes to 'The Inner Game of Tennis' (great great book to read)

Goes to, 'Zen and Art or Motorcycle Maintenance'

'Effortless Mastery' I think comes from this tree of books. They are all great and Kenny's book is great.
