Full, even tone ideal for players at every level.
Adams Introduces the all new Academy Series Padoauk 3-Octave Marimba, designed to bring a new level of accessibility and quality to the playing experience of young percussionists.
The Academy Series instruments feature a patent pending Integrated Resonator Rail System that provides not only a quality bar suspension and box resonator format, but also the rigid Aluminum Beam structure that makes these instruments the most durable in this class on the market.
Academy series keyboards can be used either on a table -top, or with the double leg X-style stand included with each instrument. A carry handle is provided to make transport easy, and a soft case will be available separately for those who need to protect their instruments from the elements. In addition, a drop cover and one pair of mallets are provided so students can begin playing as soon as the instrument is set-up.
The Academy Series features 2 learning formats for students: A 3.0 octave graduated bar padouk marimba and a 3 and a half octave light rosewood xylophone. Every tone bar of the Academy instrument is hand-adjusted through the sixth overtone using the same bar tuning methods as the top of the line Adams Artist Series instruments. Only Adams is able to consistently produce in-tune instruments with a full and even tone for players at every level.
This high quality wooden bar instrument comes at an affordable price to maximize the learning experience at the earliest level.
