The MAHA-50-9W1 5.0 Octave Rosewood Marimba features a Whitewash stained frame, with Black colored resonators. Debuting at Musikmesse 2012, Adams new Alpha Series keyboards feature tuning advancements that further enhance the sound of the instruments, notably making the upper registers sound more open and resonant. Using a proprietary computer assisted method, Adams is the only company producing bars meticulously precision tuned though an incredible sixth overtone in the lower register. This exclusive tuning process gives our keyboards the most stable pitch and evenness of sound available, and allows Adams complete control over all aspects of the marimba's sound.
Alpha features a dramatic addition to Adams frame design. Adams collaborated with Kessels Granger Design Works to create the newly contoured rails, end pieces, and resonators, available in many color and stain combinations. Alpha Series instruments feature the Adams Voyager Height Adjustment System.
FEATURES:The Alpha Series family of instruments represents the state of the art in modern instrument design. The high sweeping arc of the resonators, rich wood stain finish and polished aluminum name plate all merge seamlessly to form a visual and aural statement in modern design. Only the finest aged Honduras Rosewood is considered for the keyboard. Each bar is then tuned via the Alpha Tuning Method that ensures not only the perfect fundamental note but the perfect harmonic structure throughout the upper register. Each instrument is available in a choice of resonator color and choice of rail and end piece for an instrument as individual as you are.
FRAMES:World class design inside and out is what the Alpha Marimba represents. Hand stained solid French Oak rails and end pieces are crowned by a distinctive polished aluminum name plate to announce that this is something special. The height adjustable Voyager frame has been updated with a high arching cross support that disappears behind the sweeping arc of the Alpha resonators to provide a stunning look while providing the perfect soundstage for your audience. Integral cross rails and end caps provide structural integrity while maintaining the smooth flowing lines.
