Adams 3.0 Octave Soloist Series Padouk Marimba - Product Information
The Adams 3.0 Octave Soloist Series Padouk Marimba is a great marimba for someone looking for a smaller instrument with resonators. Features a C3 to C6 range and includes a shallow drop cover and mallets.
Padouk wood bars offer an excellent alternative to Rosewood, by producing a beautifully warm, woody sound, at a fraction of the cost. Unlike other student model marimbas, all of the bars within the Soloist Series are graduated in width. They’re slightly narrower than the Artist Series bars, specifically designed to allow easier mallet spreads for beginning players. Like all Adams Marimbas, the Soloist Series bars are precision computer tuned to a level of quality never before available in this price range.
Adams Soloist Series Marimbas offer the precision construction methods and many of the great features found on the Artist and Concert series instruments, and combine them with a number of keyboards and size options ideal for beginners and schools looking for a high quality, wood bar instrument at an extremely affordable price.
Since the inception of Adams marimba production, intonation and clarity of pitch have been paramount considerations. Adams is the only company producing bars meticulously, precision-tuned through an incredible sixth overtone, using a specially-designed, proprietary computer-assisted method. Each bar is hand tuned and adjusted by skilled craftsmen using this proprietary method. This exclusive tuning process gives all Adams marimbas the most stable pitch and evenness of sound available, and allows Adams complete control over all aspects of the marimba’s sound.
Soloist Series resonators are welded for strength and noise-free dependability, and are finished with a durable powder coated finish. The Adams patented Voyager Frame System is extremely durable and offers effortless adjustment to a wide range of playing heights.
