Adams Soloist Series Marimbas offer the same precision construction methods and many of the great features from the Artist and Concert Series Marimbas. Soloist Marimbas have keyboard and size options ideal for beginners and schools looking for a high-quality, wooden bar instrument at an extremely affordable price.
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.
Adams Soloist Series Marimbas feature the choice between select Honduras Rosewood bars or extremely economical African Padouk wood bars. Padouk bars offer an excellent alternative to Rosewood by producing a beautifully warm, woody sound at a fraction of the cost. Unlike other student model marimbas, all of the bars within the Soloist Series are graduated in width and slightly narrower than the Artist Series bars, enabling easier mallet spreads for beginning percussionists.
Soloist Series resonators are welded for strength and noise-free dependability, styled with a durable powder coated finish. Both the rails and resonators fold in half, allowing the instruments to easily fit in the trunk of almost any car.

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.
