Inspired by vintage instruments of the 1920s, the Adams Artist Glockenspiel is the new modern standard. The 1.25” high-grade steel Round Top bars sparkle with an unparalleled timbre and gorgeous bright nickel-plated steel resonators project the instrument clearly through every ensemble.
The open rail system of the Adams Artist Glockenspiel not only allows for the foot-operated damper system but also eliminates “case noise” that is normally produced by bells that are mounted in a box. The patent-pending reversible damper system allows the player to operate the pedal like a vibraphone (normal on / pedal down to release) or in a reverse position (pedal off / pedal down to dampen) depending on the musical necessity. Unique to this damper system, accidentals are still mounted in a normal stacked configuration, making the Adams glockenspiel the most playable and practical instrument available.
