Marimba rolls (notation)

Postby zac100 » Wed Sep 21, 2016 4:25 am

(Finale 2012, Windows )

See attached image -- I'm trying to replicate (and maybe, make just a little prettier) the roll notation used in this piece for solo marimba.
1) The slashes are no problem, obviously.
2) The one-handed roll in the 3rd bar has a squished, slanted O
3) The ripple roll in the last two bars are kind of a stylized S...but I'd like something a little more squished from left-to-right.

Any recommendations on font/style/size? Or a library out there? (I am not concerned about playback at all)
Thanks for any help!
