De uit Cuba afkomstige Amik Guerra heeft op zijn jonge leeftijd al een indrukwekkende lijst van referenties op zijn naam staan. Hij speelde o.a. bij Terence Trent D'arby, Persiana Jones, The New York Salsa All Stars, Celia Cruz en momenteel speelt hij samen met Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez (drums) / Italuba.
Most of the time the secret in making great instruments is the passion that some people put on them. During my visit to the Adams Factory I´ve been really surprised about how many persons take care of the new born “child” - lets call it a new instrument that way - which will enjoy the big family of people that will listen to the music.
The sound of the new Adams Flugelhorn Custom Series goes from the light colours through darker ones untill the strong tones.
Its play makes you feel at home and creates you a familiar and wellknown sound environment.
With all the tone variations, the Adams Flugelhorn Custom Series gives you the freedom and space to fly and renovate your inspiration every time you play.
I’m very proud and satisfied of playing this marvellous instrument.
Thank you Miel Adams and all the Adams family!
