New concept of multitone mallets with a great versatility. The intention and the articulation of the interpreter increase the possibilities of this model giving multiple sounds, from round sounds in the lowest part of the instrument, to clear and harder sounds in the high part. It depends on your intention when attack the note. 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 intention.
Nuno Aroso says:
"This model is a "must have" for the marimbist 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."
Protean series has been designed by ELITE MALLETS in collaboration with the teacher and contemporary concert player Nuno Aroso.
