Characteristic of 1920s American sparkling sounds in sturdy modern construction.
The Adams Artist and Concert Series Round Top Parsifal Bells are made of high-quality steel that has been custom-formulated especially for Adams. The bells exactly match the specifications of the "round top Deagan Parsifal bells" which many international musicians feel set the standard for quality and sound. Adams has designed the bells with the right timbre, resonance, and tone that match the characteristics of the 1920s American sound.

The advantage of a Voyager/Field frame over a case is that a case will always give a noise that is amplified by the sound box. Placing the bells on a Voyager/Field frame will, therefore, be a convenient and mobile solution. All bars are 1.25" wide and 7/16" thick with the highest quality satin nickel plating which prevents any bright glare under stage lighting. Another major Artist Series feature is the patent pending reversible damper system. This system allows the notes to be easily and effectively pedal-dampened like a vibraphone or reverse, depending on the player's preference.
These concert bells are designed for both professional and amateur ensembles. Their unique features and custom-made steel set them apart from any other instruments made in the world today.
