Adams Xylophone - Soloist Synthetic 3.5octave: each

Adams Xylophone - Soloist Synthetic 3.5octave: each

The Adams Solist Series is a popular choice for professionals and students alike. Whether you choose prime Honduras Rosewood, affordable Brazilian Light Rosewood (Pau Rosa), or durable synthetic Zelon, each bar is painstakingly hand-adjusted through the sixth overtone using a proprietary computer assisted method at the hands of a highly skilled Adams craftsman. This precise tuning and voicing process ensures the instrument’s sound is balanced perfectly throughout the entire range.

Octave tuned instruments have a clear and brilliant sound and are mostly used in European countries. An octave tuned instrument has the first overtone 2 octaves above the fundamental while a quint tuned instrument has the first overtone tuned in between the fundamental and the double octave. Quint tuned instruments produces a short, penetrating attack that cuts though the largest orchestra and ensemble.

Transport can be challenging for percussionists. With the Solist xylophone, however, both the rails and resonators fold in half, allowing the instruments to easily fit in the trunk of almost any car. The resonators are also welded for strength and noise-free dependability, and styled with a durable powder-coated finish.

Field tested by today’s top drum and bugle corps, Adams specially designed Zelon synthetic bars offer the highest quality tone and projection available, in conjunction with unmatched durability to the sun and heat of even the most forbidding outdoor performances. Zelon has a bright timbral response that maximizes projection and sustain to fill even the largest of spaces.
