This series is suggested for playing solos, duos or small acoustic ensembles. It has a dark sound and it’s the attack is warm, not as bright as the I.S. VCS series.
With comparison in between both series in this video, Michael Carp from US uses the models Concert Series VCS 5 (with anterior brown wool) and ELITE V5 to play a vibraphone solo composed by Philippe Manoury.
The wool is special, it is not in a specific colour all the time, so each head is different and all the sets of mallets are unique.
