The articulation of the interpreter increase the sound possibilities of this model because of the multitone character, from round sounds in the lowest part of the instrument, to clear and harder sounds in the high part. This is the perfect model to start when working on the attack control, to let the students feel how many different sounds they can get with the same set of mallets playing with a different articulations.
Nuno Aroso says:
"This model is a "must have" for the marimba artist who is looking for a clear and projected sound in any both solo and chamber/orchestral playing situations. The mallets provide the musician a total control of the articulation and amount of sound you produce. Following the chameleonic philosophy of the Protean Series, the medium/hard model will work over the entire range of the marimba."
