Superior rosewood construction.
After many years of research, Adams Instruments presents new Artist, concert and Soloist series rosewood bars. While nothing visually has changed, the sound and ease of playing from these bars has been drastically improved.
Mr. Andre Adams and Mr. Frans Swinkels visited the Honduran forests several times to select the best possible wood for the production of their marimba bars. Adams' policy is to keep wood in special climate-controlled rooms for 8 years to insure precise aging. The instruments from this wood produces phenomenal sound, a much faster, clearer tone and pitch. Exactly what all marimba players want.
Adams marimba converstion kits expand a 4.3 octave to a 5.0 octave marimba or contract a 5.0 octave to a 4.3 octave marimba. Available for both Artist and Artist Classic Series. This feature makes the Adams Artist Series the only marimba that can grow and be flexible with your musical and performance needs.
Includes: 2 low-end resonators (natural and accidental); black end piece; 4 black rails; 1 support rail, notes C2-G#2; black covered rails and end caps.
