Incredible intonation across all bars.

Debuting at Musikmesse 2012, Adams new Alpha Series marimbas feature tuning advancements that further enhance the sound of the instruments, notably making the upper registers sound more open and resonant. Using a proprietary computer assisted method, Adams is the only company producing bars meticulously precision tuned though an incredible sixth overtone in the lower register. This exclusive tuning process gives Adams marimbas the most stable pitch and evenness of sound available, and allows Adams complete control over all aspects of the marimba's sound. The Adams Alpha Series MAHA43/9W features Graphite rails and is available with Satin Gold, Black, or Desert resonators.

The Alpha Series family of instruments represents the state of the art in modern instrument design. The high sweeping arc of the resonators, rich wood stain finish and polished aluminum name plate all merge seamlessly to form a visual and aural statement in modern design. Only the finest aged Honduras Rosewood is considered for the keyboard. Each bar is then tuned via the Alpha Tuning Method that ensures not only the perfect fundamental note but the perfect harmonic structure throughout the upper register. Each instrument is available in a choice of resonator color and choice of rail and end piece for an instrument as individual as you are.

Alpha features a dramatic addition to Adams frame design. Adams collaborated with Kessels Granger Design Works to create the newly contoured rails, end pieces, and resonators, available in many color and stain combinations. Alpha Series instruments feature the Adams Voyager Height Adjustment System.
