Adams has designed the Concert Series orchestra bells with the same bars as the Artist Series, but with the materials and finishes needed by today's ensembles. Adams research and development has painstakingly matched the bar specifications of early 20th Century American "Round-Top Parsifal Bells" with modern design and materials.
The Concert Series Glockenspiel shares many specifications with the Artist Model, including the same 3.3 octave range of 1.25” high grade steel Round Top Bars, key beds with open rail system, and Voyager Height Adjustment Mechanism. The Concert Series includes durable vinyl wrapped rails and powder coated steel resonators, available on both the Voyager and Endurance Field Frames.
The Concert Series GCV-33 and GCF-33 feature a 3.3 octave (C-E) range including Silver powder coated Steel Resonators and Adams’ patented Height Adjustable Voyager or Endurance Field Frame. The open rail system of the Adams Concert Glockenspiel eliminates “case noise” that is normally produced by bells that are mounted in a box.
