Adams Adams Artist Vibraphones

Artist Model Vibraphones offer the strong and steady Traveler Frame combining the ease of the Voyager Height Adjustment System with the durability and stability players demand in the studio and in clubs.

Artist Series Vibes are available with natural clear lacquer finish French Oak rails and end caps, making a distinct impression on stage or in your home. Artist Resonators are precision welded and finished in a Dark Grey powder coat finish.

Adams vibraphone motor and drive belts are completely enclosed within the beautifully finished wooden upper end cap of the instrument, providing both easy access to its top mounted controls, excellent protection from the elements, and nearly silent operation. The patented Adams Adjustable Fan System makes set-up fast and easy, eliminating any typical rubber band installation by the player. The instrument’s 12 volt motor runs safely on 110 or 220 volt power with the special converting power adaptor, totally eliminating the possibility of any electrical hazard. The clean and dependable top mounted, backlit controls allow the player to choose whether the fans stop in either the open or closed position. The motor speed is fully adjustable from 25 to 150 rpm with an intuitive fader control.

A newly advanced, foot operated precision dampening mechanism allows both damper and rail height adjustments, allowing each player to custom configure the feel of the instrument to their exact playing style. The damper also utilizes a new supreme quality felt material to achieve truly silent damping. An optional Long Pedal Extension Accessory converts the swivel pedal to a full length pedal board.

Since the inception of Adams instrument 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.

Adams Artist Series Vibraphones include a short drop cover and 2 pairs of mallets.
