Ludwig Albert Signature Marimba
Iconic and distinguished
Ludwig Albert is unmistakably an icon in the international marimba world. With his own marimba competition, worldwide masterclasses and his self-developed 'eight-mallet grip, he has influenced many young players in an particular way.
The instrument Adams made for him is based on the Adams Custom marimba with the so-called 'Traveler Frame'. The instrument has a range of C2 - C7 with bars from selected Honduras Rosewood, tuned with the “Adams Alpha tuning method,” the most advanced tuning method for marimbas in the world. Unique to the Ludwig Albert signature model are the beautifully dark-red stained bars with rounded accidental bars.
Built on the Adams Traveler frame with low crossbeam and smooth, large wheels, the instrument has great stability. The beautiful “whitewash” stained rails and end-parts, in combination with the matt gold lacquered resonators, make the instrument a beautiful appearance on every stage.
