Adams Soloist Series Xylophones feature a choice between prime Honduras Rosewood or durable Synthetic Zelon bars and include many of the same great designs and features found on our higher-end Concert Series Xylophones.
Soloist Series instruments now feature the Adams Apex Frame — with its unique minimalist side pillar design, integrated shore braces, and ultra-strong two-piece crossbar, Apex instruments are quick to assemble and easy to transport, allowing performers at any level to achieve their peak performance.
For the university or competitive high school band in search of an ultra high-quality xylophone with unmatched durability for both indoor and outdoor use, the Adams Soloist Series with Synthetic Zelon Bars is the perfect choice. The Adams' specially designed synthetic zelon bar material produces a high-quality warm tone, with great projection throughout the entire range of the instrument.
Like all Adams Xylophones, the Soloist Series Synthetic models feature precision tuning to an incredible sixth overtone - this allows the synthetic zelon bars to produce a truly balanced, warm and resonant sound with perfect pitch. The 3.5 octave Soloist Xylophone features uniform bars, and slightly graduated bars on the 4.0 octave.
Adams Apex Frame
Modern, Minimalist Design
Apex frames feature a dramatic swept-back side pillar design for modern style and ultimate strength. Only three frame parts make Apex quick to assemble and easy to transport.
Elevate Your Performance
The simple, strong, and proven Adams height adjustment mechanism has been transformed in the new Apex frame, creating a total unrestricted performance experience and easy height adjustment, allowing performers at any level to achieve their peak performance.
The low center of gravity, accomplished by the ultra-strong aluminum crossbar and stability-enhancing connections, along with an eccentric radial-locking center joint mechanism, provides ultimate stability with a clean, stylish look and easy movement.
Integrated Shore Braces
Integrated shore braces with hand-screw fittings provide maximum lateral strength and guaranteed vertical positioning at every set-up.
