Adams Artist Classic Custom

" The Custom Classic marimba truly sounds as beautiful as it looks! Adams has combined a perfectly-voiced and incredibly consistent keyboard (especially the low registers), with the most durable and easily-adjusted height adjustment and frame in the business--and the new design looks amazing on stage. Ours have become the first choice for recitals and recording sessions at Florida State." - John W. Parks IV, Florida State University

Artist Resonators

The resonators found on all Artist Series Marimbas are structurally welded for the utmost in strength and isolation from mechanical noises. Each tube is carefully designed to amplify the fundamental note and give you maximum volume, sustain and clarity. Lower register resonators are tunable and each resonator system is mounted on a rubber isolation system to ensure the maximum resonance and eliminate all possible mechanical noise.

Artist Voyager Frame

Our patented Voyager frame is far and away today’s most flexible and transportable frame offering a height adjustment system second to none. A quick turn of a handle effortlessly adjusts the height and angle of both ends of the instrument to the player’s preference.

The Adams Artist Classic Custom Marimbas are available in 4.3, and 5.0 octave ranges. Each instrument comes equipped with a protective short drop cover and a set of four mallets.


The Artist Classic Custom frame opens a new chapter for Adams marimbas with visual appeal different from other Adams marimbas. The Classic Custom marimba features the Patented Voyager height adjustment system integrated into a solid handcrafted oak frame finished in a lustrous Walnut stain finish. Large solid double locking concert casters make the instruments easy to roll and adjust into set-ups. The Adams Classic Custom looks as good in your home as it will on stage.
