Background

Mallet percussion has a long history dating to the Neolithic Period, between 5,000 and 9,000 years ago (Moersch 2016 citing NY Times article 1954)

Vibraphones, xylophones, glockenspiels, and chimes have been part of the evolution of mallet instruments with reference to a more contemporary instrument termed by Moersch as the  Aluphone: "a keyboard composed of spun aluminum bowls" as a member of the mallet percussion family

Management

From Loria citine Beveridge et al. "drummers with higher levels of expertise demonstrated reduced levels of muscle co-contraction in the wrists and hands" compared to  "drummers with limited experience displayed greater muscle co-contraction in wrist flexor and extensor muscles to stabilize drumming strokes"
