Marimbas Academy

Adams Academy Series brings the World renowned quality and sound of Adams to the student percussionist. The 3.0 octave marimba is perfect for school or home use. Adams all new Academy Series maximizes the learning experience with quality from the very first note.

Adams Academy Series is the start of something big.

Features

The Adams Academy Series marimbas are designed to bring a new level of accessibility and quality to the playing experience of young percussionists. These 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 on the market.

Both the AMPD-33R 3.3 Octave and AMPD30 3.0 Octave marimbas features the same Padouk bars as used on the Best –Selling Soloist Series instruments, giving the player a true graduated bar instrument to learn and grow with. The AMPD33R 3.3 octave Academy Marimba with Resonators is designed to be an affordable option that allows the intermediate student to work on many of the pieces written for a low A marimba, all while still having the full tone and projection of a full size marimba.

Every tone bar 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.

Academy series keyboards can be used either on a table -top, or with the double leg X-style stand included with each instrument. The stand fits securely into one of three incremental slots to ensure stability while allowing the instrument to fit any size player. It’s simple yet ergonomic lightweight design lends itself for easy storage and set-up.

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.

With the Adams Academy Series instruments, everyone can have a high quality wooden bar instrument at an affordable price, maximizing the learning experience at the earliest level.
