Adams Adams Soloist Adams Soloist

Adams Soloist Series Marimbas offer the precision construction methods and many of the great features found on our Artist and Concert series instruments, and combine them witha number of keyboards and size options ideal for beginners and schools looking for a high quality, wood bar instrument, at an extremely affordable price.

When purchasing a Soloist Series instrument, you have a choice between prime Honduras Rosewood bars or our extremely economical African Padouk wood bars. Padouk wood bars offer an excellent alternative to Rosewood, by producing a beautifully warm, woody sound, at a fraction of the Rosewood’s cost. Adams was the first manufacturer to offer a truly high quality, wood bar student instrument, and Padouk wood bars are available on both our 4.3 octave Soloist Series marimba, and our 3.0 octave Soloist Series Marimba. Unlike other student model marimbas, all of the bars within our Soloist Series are graduated in width. They’re slightly narrower than our Artist Series bars, specifically designed to allow easier mallet spreads for beginning players. Like all Adams Marimbas, our Soloist Series bars are precision computer tuned to a level of quality never before available in this price range.

Our Soloist Series resonators are welded for strength and noise free dependability, and are finished with a durable powder coated finish. Only the essential note resonators are provided to lower the weight and cost. Both the rails and resonators fold in half, allowing these instruments to easily fit in the trunk of almost any car. Bag sets are available to protect the instrument during transport.

The Adams patented Voyager Frame System is extremely durable and offers effortless adjustment to a wide range of playing heights. The 4.0 octave Soloist Marimba Voyager frame is specially designed to adjust to a lower height, ideal for younger players getting a head start. We also offer an Endurance Field Frame to fit each of our Soloist Series Marimbas should you need the ultimate in durable mobility.

All Soloist Series Marimbas come completely equipped with a protective cover and mallets.

Frames

Adams Concert Series Marimba end caps and rails are finished in a durable Tolex vinyl covering. No other marimba on the market is as easy to transport as the Adams Voyager Concert frame. Our Patented Voyager height adjustment system is an elegant design that allows for quick, precise adjustments.

MSPVJ instruments are designed for a younger player and feature a lower overall height adjustment range for growing percussionists getting an early start.

Adams Soloist Series marimbas arrive with short drop cover and 1 pair of mallets included.

Configurations

Since the inception of Adams marimba production, intonation and clarity of pitch have been paramount considerations. Adams is the only company producing bars meticulously precision tuned though an incredible sixth overtone, using a specially designed proprietary computer assisted method. Each bar is hand tuned and adjusted by skilled craftsmen using this proprietary method. This exclusive tuning process gives all Adams marimbas the most stable pitch and evenness of sound available, and allows Adams complete control over all aspects of the marimba’s sound.
