Play a wide bar instrument

Adams Concert series marimbas are available with an exclusive Honduras Rosewood, durable Zelon or a cost-effective African Padouk keyboard. The great advantage of the marimbas from this series is that the bars are just as wide as those of a top-class professional instrument. This will help you get used to a mallet spread that will come in handy later on.

Hear every detail in perfect harmony

Whether you choose Rosewood, Padouk, or Zelon, each bar is painstakingly hand-adjusted through the sixth overtone using a proprietary computer assisted method at the hands of a highly skilled Adams craftsman. This precise tuning and voicing process ensures the instrument’s sound is balanced perfectly throughout the entire range.

Honduras Rosewood

Adams Honduras Rosewood is the most resonant material for marimbas, and is specially sourced and handled to get the most out of every bar. Full fundamental, and clean projecting sustain is the hallmark of Adams Rosewood Marimbas for professional and every perforamance situation. 

Padouk

Padouk is a natural material with a similar tonal response to rosewood, with a slightly shorter sustain. Players find mallet choices and playing technique like roll speed and dynamic control is nearly indentical to that of rosewood with a lower cost, making it an ideal bar choice for a personal practice instrument or an ensemble.

Zelon

Field tested by today’s top drum and bugle corps, our specially designed Zelon synthetic bars offer the highest quality tone and projection available, in conjunction with unmatched durability to the sun and heat of even the most forbidding outdoor performances. Zelon has a bright timbral response that maximizes projection and sustain to fill even the largest of spaces.

Convenience is a luxury

Adams Concert Series Marimba end caps and rails are finished in a durable Black Tolex vinyl covering that has a classic look on stage or from the field. Our Patented Apex height adjustment system is an elegant design that allows for quick, precise adjustments. No other marimba on the market is as easy to transport as the Adams marimbas.

The Adams Apex mallet frame is designed to provide the best possible sound, to deliver a frictionless experience, and to surprise with astonishing and modern looks, the Adams Apex frame reaches a new peak in design. Apex replaces the Voyager and Traveller frames.

Structural rigidity is the most important part of the Apex design. The position of the high-strengthcentral crossbar creates a very low center of gravity for peerless ease of motion and the ultimate instability. Combined with reinforced crossbar connections, the strength and support of the Apex side pillars provide less frame-noise than any other frame available.

The time tested Adams height adjustment mechanism is the most intuitive, simple, and strongestsystem in the market, and has been transformed in an improved design for the Apex frame. With its unique side pillars and improved crossbar connections, the Apex frame is quick to assemble and easy to transport.
