It´s a model with very round and deep sound, exceptional for playing tremolos and pieces for lower part of the instrument, with the possibility to play the sounds with no attack in dynamics pp, p mp, mf. This is not a multitone model, its core is a very soft rubber. The intention and the articulation of the interpreter can make the possibilities of this model higher, especially in the lower octave and middle part of the instrument.
Important note: For long-term maintenance, it is advised to hollow out the wool when you take out the mallets from your bag, and after a long period of using / studying (1-2 hours). As the following video we provided here: http://www.vimeo.com/26202512
