In 1970 Adams Muziekcentrale was founded by André Adams his carreer started as a repairman of wind instruments, for which he was educated in Brussels (Belgium) and Nauheim (Germany). When he had successfully completed these studies, he started as a self-employed instrument repairman, operating from his parents' shed. And while busy repairing, the question whether or not to start selling instruments kept cropping up. Adams' customers - musical societies and musicians - felt that where musical instruments were repaired, they should also be sold. The concept of a music shop was born and in 1970, Thorn was able to welcome Muziekcentrale Adams. With his metallurgical background, André Adams one day decided to manufacture a timpani. After all, a timpani combines music with technology - a perfect combination for a pioneer such as André Adams. The first timpani's were manufactured, which soon found their way to the brass bands among the regular clientele of Muziekcentrale Adams. Currently in addition to timpani's, the Adams factory also manufactures marimbas, vibraphones, xylophones, concert bass drums, tubular chimes, and glockenspiels. Next to that a separate brass instrument facotry produces, trumpets, trombones, baritones, euphoniums and tuba's. The list of instruments which are produced at Adams will continue to grow due to the investments in to research and development, which are very important to the company Adams.
