Adams Musical Instruments - Experience the Sound of Quality

Adams Academy Series Marimba

This is for the young ones

The Adams Academy Series is designed to bring accessibility and quality to the youngest percussionists. Students can learn on a 3.0 or 3.3 octave range of Solist series bars that have been tuned with the same method as the top of the line series, perfect for school or home use.

Adams Academy Series Marimbas feature a patent-pending Integrated Resonator Rail System that provides not only a quality bar suspension and box resonator format, but also the rigid Aluminum Beam structure that makes Academy the most durable instruments on the market.

Academy Marimbas feature the same Padouk bars as used on the Adams Solist series instruments, giving the player a true graduated bar instrument to learn and grow on. The 3.3 octave Academy Marimba with Resonators is designed to be an affordable option that allows the intermediate student to work on many of the pieces written for a low A marimba, all while still having the full tone and projection of a full-size marimba.

Plug & Play

Academy series keyboards can be used either on a tabletop or with the double leg, X-style stand included with each instrument. The stand fits securely into one of three incremental slots to ensure stability while allowing the instrument to fit any size player. It’s simple yet ergonomic lightweight design lends itself for easy storage and set-up.

A carry handle is provided to make transport easy, and a soft case is available separately for extra protection. In addition, a drop cover and one pair of mallets are provided so students can begin playing as soon as the instrument is set-up.

Also available with resonators

The newest member of the Academy series of student instruments, is the 3.3 octaves range Padouk marimba. The instrument features a revolutionary 'Transverse Resonator System' that enhances the tonal performance experience while still allowing the instrument to have the maximum height adjustment for the younger player. The resonators detach from the Aluminum Rail System of the 3.3 Oct Padouk bar marimba, allowing the instrument to be easily transported or stored. The extended 3.3 oct range of the instrument adds notes down to A2, allowing the player to access a majority of the literature written for the beginner to intermediate player.
