ADAMS MARIMBA ARTIST CLASSIC AD-MAHC50

Since 1999, I have been playing Marimba Artist Classic Model by Adams. I’ve really fallen in love with this instrument for its compact design made easy to carry when disassembled, easy adjustment of height (Voyager system), rich pallet of sounds adaptable for both concerto and solo or light and heavy mallets, and its quickness of response. When playing marimba, one often feels apprehensive about striking the low notes which are thinly carved, for it feels as though they are on the brink of breakage. There is no such worry for Adams marimba. They consistently respond to a powerful strike with rich, deep sonority. As for the appearance, marimbas often have furniture-like wood grain on its components, which this model does not have. As part of the “anti-furniture” school, I proudly recommend this instrument!
