Brought to you by Adams, the Academy Series Padouk Marimba provides student marimbists with a professional-quality instrument designed to foster skill development. This 3.0-octave marimba features padouk bars crafted and tuned to match Adams' prestigious Soloist Series, resulting in a rich, resonant tone. Its sturdy yet portable aluminum frame brings convenience to any rehearsal or performance. For student percussionists ready to take their playing to the next level, the Academy Series Padouk Marimba delivers an unrivaled learning experience.
Padouk Bars Provide Premium Tonality
At the heart of the Academy Series Padouk Marimba are padouk bars crafted from the same high-quality wood and tuned to the exacting standards as Adams' Soloist Series marimbas. This results in a warm, resonant tone with clear note definition across the 3.0-octave range from C3 to C6. Such premium bar construction and tuning provide student musicians an ideal environment to develop their skills.
Durable Design Meets Portability
While the Academy Series Padouk Marimba's aluminum frame provides a sturdy foundation for the instrument, its flat profile and included carry handle make transporting and storing marimba convenient. An included "X"-style stand allows for easy setup and three height adjustments to suit any student. This combination of professional-grade construction and thoughtful portability gives music educators and student marimbists an instrument able to withstand the demands of practice and performance.
