Adams Alpha Series 5.0 Octave Rosewood Marimba with White Wash Rails
In stock at Guitar Center
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 produces bars meticulously precision-tuned through the sixth overtone in the lower register. This exclusive tuning process gives Adams keyboards the most stable pitch and evenness of sound available, and allows complete control over all aspects of the marimba's sound. The MAHA50 is a five-octave instrument. This model features White Wash rails.
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.
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.
