The Classic Custom marimba has many of the same features of the Artist Classic marimbas--beautifully stained rails and end caps, hand selected Honduras Rosewood, and the same Voyager frame and height adjustability. The full stained wood frame and rich gold-colored resonators add to the elegant stage presence of this fine instrument.
The Adams Artist Marimbas are made from the best materials and is the first choice for any marimba player. Eight years ago, Adams began to purchase a higher quality rosewood than was previously ever available. Mr. André Adams and Mr. Frans Swinkels visited the Honduran forests several times to select the best possible wood for the production of their marimba bars. Adams' policy is to keep our wood in special climate-controlled rooms for 8 years to insure precise aging. The result is quite honestly phenomenal! A much faster, clearer tone and pitch. Exactly what all marimba players want.
All Artist Marimbas bars are finished with a special developed lacquer which ensures optimum sound. The resonators are carefully designed to amplify the fundamental note of each bar and to give the maximum sustain, power and clarity. The patented voyager system on the Adams Artist Marimbas allow easy adjustments over a wide range of playing heights. Rails are removable and fold in half for easy packing and transportation.
