Adams Honduras Rosewood is the most resonant material for marimbas, and is specially sourced and handled to get the most out of every bar. Full fundamental, and clean projecting sustain is the hallmark of Adams Rosewood Marimbas for professional and every perforamance situation.
Padouk is a natural material with a similar tonal response to rosewood, with a slightly shorter sustain. Players find mallet choices and playing technique like roll speed and dynamic control is nearly indentical to that of rosewood with a lower cost, making it an ideal bar choice for a personal practice instrument or an ensemble.
Field tested by today’s top drum and bugle corps, our specially designed Zelon synthetic bars offer the highest quality tone and projection available, in conjunction with unmatched durability to the sun and heat of even the most forbidding outdoor performances. Zelon has a bright timbral response that maximizes projection and a long sustian to fill the largest of spaces.
All Marimba resonators are structurally welded for the utmost in strength and safety from mechanical noises, and are finished with a durable powder-coated finish. Each tube is carefully designed to amplify the fundamental note while providing maximum volume, sustain and clarity.

This feature is perfect for educational situations requiring use by many different size players. This same ultra smooth height adjustment system can also be found on the Endurance Field Frame. The Endurance Field Frame was designed for maximum strength and durability, allowing you to transport your Concert Series Synthetic Marimba over grass, turf, parking lots, or anywhere your marching band might venture to take it.
