Head with 28 mm diameter, made with lighter and less dense wood, specially thought for delicate situations, to play small and light sounds (like Ravel´s piece Ma Mere l'oye , for example), this model is NOT recommended for big sounds in the Tutti of symphonic orchestras or in great ensembles, the wood that we use is delicate and does not admit that use.
We guarantee the quality of all our materials, absolutely, but we recommend to have the correct use for this reference with its fantastic sound. (we have sold thousands of pairs around the world). This model do not admit the use for situations that require big sounds, for that moments we have manufactured the XCS2 and especially the XCS3 models.
