Adams Musical Instruments - Together in Music

Custom Classic Series Marimba

The traditional and timeless styling of the Custom Classic marimba features a frame and rails made of entirely French oak. The end caps of the instrument house the patented 'Voyager Height Adjustment System' and a sturdy platform. The eye-catching frame is available in an exclsuive clear lacquer- or walnut stain finish, which can be paired with either Black or Desert resonators. 

The most resonant wood on the planet
Honduras Rosewood, a very unique wood with unparalleled sound qualities grows in the heart of Central America. The beauty of its resonance can even be heard on a raw-cut piece of wood Honduras Rosewood, which is also known for its hardness and durability. These typical characteristics makes it the best and most valuable wood available for crafting mallet instruments.

Illegal trade and overharvesting is a real threat for Honduras Rosewood, and local communities in the region. The high demand of the hardwood-furniture industry drives illegal trade, and even many companies in the music industry buy from dealers without a moral compass.

Adams Musical Instruments has an own local mill with plantation to ensure sustainably and prevent unnecessary harvesting. In this way we help to protect the most beautiful wood in the world, securing the future of our beloved instruments with respect for the local community.
Every Adams mallet instrument containing Honduras Rosewood has the right documentation to prove that we work according the strict guidelines of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).

Adams Musical Instruments has always worked in this sustainable way, with necessary documentation. Even long before the regulations on this type of wood were tightened, and protection became a major theme in the music industry forcing companies to take action.
