Alternatives to CSS Marcato (longs) please..Help !

I love CSS, especially the sound of the shorts, however the marcato attack longs, both with and without overlay, don’t sound good to my ear. They are very vibby and really don’t blend with the shorts when alternating in the same phrase.

I’m really struggling mocking up a piece at the moment which calls for pretty vanilla marcato crochet/quarter notes that are not a sustain, but longer than a staccato. I guess like a full length quarter note with a line underneath. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. The attack doesn’t need to be too heavy.

many thanks
