Xylofoon

Adams Keyboard Instruments exceed the demands of today’s players and repertoire. Driven by innovation, Adams produces the best in tune instruments in the industry, always manufactured with the highest levels of craftsmanship and materials.


Quint Tuning

Quint tuning has a fifth tuned in between the fundamental and double octave for the short, penetrating sound that cuts through the largest ensembles. Quint tuning was the used on the classic American Xylophones of the 20s and 30s.


Octave Tuning

Octave tuning has the first overtone the two octaves above the fundamental for a clear and brilliant sound, and is mostly popular in Europe.

Across the family of instruments, bar materials are available for every musical need. All Adams keyboards are tuned using a proprietary computer assisted method to create the most in tune, evenly voiced instruments on the market.


Honduras Rosewood

The best wood for xylophones is Honduras Rosewood. Its hardness perfectly resists hard xylophone mallets, and the projection of the wood is amazing.
The high standard set by Adams Honduras Rosewood is the result of years of careful, intensive advancement. The clear, precise pitch of Adams Honduras Rosewood begins with selecting only the best wood available. Before tuning, the Honduras Rosewood is aged for years in a climate controlled room to ensure proper drying and moisture control.


Light Rosewood

Offering a bright, sharp sound, Light Rosewood is an excellent, economical alternative to Honduras Rosewood for Xylophone bars. Its hardness and projection is less than Honduras Rosewood, so for intensive playing or use in bigger orchestras we always suggest Honduras Rosewood bars.

Only available in the Solist Series.



Zelon
