Honduras Rosewood

The high standard set by Adams Select Honduras Rosewood is the result of years of careful, intensive advancement. The clear, precise pitch of Adams marimbas bars begins with using only the best wood. Mr. Andre Adams and Mr. Frans Swinkels visited Honduran rainforests several times to select and purchase rosewood of a quality higher than was available ever before. Aged for eight years in a climate controlled room to ensure proper drying and moisture control, the bars are then meticulously tuned using a proprietary computer assisted tuning method. The newly developed Alpha tuning method allows Adams’ master tuners incredibly high precision placement of overtones to create the best in tune bars, perfectly balanced and resonant throughout the range. This exclusive method allows Adams to tune the lower register of the marimba through a sixth overtone. These meticulous efforts create stable, in tune pitch that projects with fast, warm, and clear tone.
