ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO, USA, February 1, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Douglas Cardwell, sound healer, percussionist and founder of Lotus Sound Bath in Albuquerque, NM, has teamed up with Dragonfly Percussion to bring two entirely new products to the singing bowl and gong world.
Lotus³ mallets are 3-in-1 implements designed to strike and sing crystal singing bowls and gongs – all with one mallet. The Lotus³ Alpha is a Resonance Medium Soft gong mallet wrapped in rust colored fleece so musicians and sound healers can effortlessly transition between playing singing bowls and gongs without changing mallets. The Lotus³ Beta has a smaller purple fleece-wrapped mallet head ideal for safely striking bowls, resulting in a warm, full-bodied sound.
“For maximum efficiency and minimal mallet changes during sound healing and sound immersion practice, the Lotus³ mallets are the perfect choice,” says Cardwell. “Both mallets feature a soft purple silicone handle and high-density green silicone ball. The purple handle creates a super smooth fade-in/fade-out effect when rubbed along the lip of the bowl. The silicone ball allows for louder, more robust friction on the side of the bowl. Transitioning between the silicone ball and handle is easy and seamless.”
The collaboration between Lotus Sound Bath and Dragonfly Percussion came about because both Cardwell and Dinesh Joseph of Dragonfly are orchestral percussionists and timpanists by training. “The orchestral world is extremely small and tight knit, and so it was only a matter of time before our paths crossed,” says Joseph. “When Douglas reached out about collaborating on mallets for crystal bowls, I was excited because of his excellent reputation as a timpanist and the fact that as sound healers and percussionists, we would be speaking the same language. I was also aware that Douglas is a keen business person, and brings valuable product insight and expertise. Once we got to talking, it was immediately clear that we connected well and were going to craft something great together.”
Lotus³ mallets can be found at https://dragonflypercussion.com/collections/singing-bowl-1/products/lotus3-l3 and at these retailers: Steve Weiss Music; Gongs Unlimited/Unlimited Singing Bowls; Thomann Musik (Germany/EU); The Gong Shop; Sunreed Instruments; Sound Healing Instrument Shop.

About Dragonfly Percussion
Dragonfly Percussion was started by Dinesh Joseph in the back hallway percussion workshop at the Juilliard School in 2000. First there was one solitary pair of Magic Flute sticks. Then Steve Weiss Music got wind of them and suddenly, there were many pairs, plus several other models, in quick succession. Dragonfly’s product line has expanded many fold, secured endorsements from some of the finest players in the world and are now shipped worldwide.
