Adams 4.3 Oct. Concert Padouk Marimba with Voyager Frame - Product Information

The Adams MCPV43 4.3 Octave Concert Wide-Bar Series Padouk Marimba has the same features of the best selling Concert Series marimbas including: Concert Series bar width, welded essential resonators, Voyager height-adjustable frame, upgraded leg castings with large locking casters, and black vinyl covered hardwood rails.

Padouk wood bars offer an excellent alternative to Rosewood by producing a beautifully warm, woody sound at a fraction cost. The bars are hand-adjusted through the sixth overtone, giving Adams complete control over all aspects of the marimba sound. Precise tuning and voicing provides for balanced sound through the entire range of the instrument.

Can be upgraded to Honduras Rosewood or Zelon Synthetic bars in the future as the needs of the player change.

Drop Cover and Mallets included.

You can't beat it with a stick!! (mallets only)

Comments:

This is an awesome marimba! The frame is very sturdy and well designed, and it sounds beautiful. I think it is reprehensible that it is often described as a "practice" marimba. That's like saying if you don't own a Stradivarius, you should only play in you basement for fear of embarrassment. If you're going to play with Yo-Yo Ma, you'll need to pay the big bucks. Otherwise, enough with the snobbery.

Big marimba!

Comments:

We bought this marimba for our son who has recently started taking lessons. He was given a piece that was impossible to practice on a 3-octave vibraphone. This marimba is huge! It sounds very pretty and was relatively easy to assemble. The only thing we didn't anticipate was the enormity of the instrument. Moves well on wheels. Definitely an investment.

A Very Fine Instrument

Comments:

After playing drums for about 60 years including a period of about 23 years when my profession interfered with my with opportunities, I decided to study mallet instruments. Based on the recommendation of a Steve Weiss representative I purchased this instrument to replace a used rental vibraphone. I couldn't be more satisfied. The Padouck sounds almost as good as the rosewood instrument in my instructor's studio. A great value.

Fabulous instrument for the price

Comments:

For what it is, this is a wonderful marimba. If you are looking for a practice instrument, or a starter marimba this is a fantastic choice. I would definitely choose this over the Adams Padouk soloist, TOTALLY worth the extra $300 as the keys are the same size as most other marimbas so your interval training will not be useless if you go to compete, or play on a "real" instrument somewhere. The sound is pleasant enough, not the warm rich sound you get from Rosewood, but with the right mallets it is lovely. Shipping was unique, it comes on a pallet and you have to be there for delivery, but it is a BIG shipment. As long as you are prepared for that, it is no problem. If you haven't owned a marimba before, be prepared. Like a grand piano, it takes a good amount of space, and completely replaced our sofa. It breaks down and transports well, and comes with a cover. If well taken care of this is a great investment.
