Modern Standard BegleriAroundsquare's "Standards" begleri series is our homage to the ubiquitous “standard issue” Greek barrel shaped begleri. This series is a contemporary adaptation of the original timeless design, with a slightly refined shape, precision machined and polished to perfection. They feature the same 1:1 aspect ratio favoured by most players, and a compact form factor that is small enough to slip easily past the string instead of binding, and sufficiently rounded for comfortable play. The right angles in the design provide excellent bead control without compromising on nimbleness. -
The Mini Standard series is sized at 14mm tall by 14mm wide, making it the most compact standalone set we have produced to date. The beads are noticeably smaller than our other begleri, but due to the angles and compact weight, they feel very substantial in the hand, and during play. Note that unlike the Modern Standard beads, the Mini Standards are not Hardcore Compatible, meaning the inner bore is not large enough to accommodate the beads of the Hardcore Gut System. This shouldn’t be a concern for most players, as the Mini Standard beads are sufficiently weighted to play very well on their own. Individual bead weights are Copper 15g, Brass 14g, Stainless Steel 13g and Titanium 7.5g.
Note that, if used correctly, the smooth polished look of these ain't gonna last. Please see photo included with this listing showing they type of wear patterns that you can expect on the three metals. Stainless steel is the hardest, followed by brass, and then copper. All sets come with extra cords, stickers, and a carry bag, although colours and quantities may not be as shown in the photos.
