DANSR Adds Smith Mallets to Brand Lineup

Christian Wissmuller • MMR GlobalUpfront • May 8, 2019

DANSR, Inc. is proud to announce that effective May 1stit has begun worldwide distribution for Smith Mallets. Located in Phoenix, AZ, Smith Mallets was founded by Robb Smith in 2004. Smith manufactures a wide variety of high-quality mallets ranging from entry level to professional.

Smith earned a Bachelor’s in Music in Percussion Performance and a Minor in Music Education from Virginia Commonwealth University and started making his own mallets while studying at VCU. Soon, Smith began making them for fellow students. The manufacturing of mallets was put on hold as Robb pursued his performance career which included performing with the Richmond Symphony as well as Broadway Musicals. Smith knew he’d be back to making mallets as he saw the opportunity to create high-performance mallets at a lower cost than most.

“The exceptional value Robb has created in his mallet line, along with the passion that comes from being an independent family-owned business, is what attracted us to Smith Mallets. That is who we are and what the brands we represent are all about,” said Sales Manager Stephanie Murphy. “Smith’s passion for making great mallets is shown in his work,” added Gary Winder, Executive VP of Sales. “This is a mallet line you have to experience. The quality far exceeds the price.”

DANSR is also pleased to announce that Harris-Teller, Inc. will be the exclusive sub-distributor for Smith Mallets in the United States.
