Flowing Design. Tonal Perfection.
Adams Alpha Series Vibraphone
Could have, should have, would have. Life’s too short for ‘what ifs’. Too short for unfilled daydreams. The Adams Alpha series vibraphone combines advanced acoustic engineering with cutting edge design for an instrument that stands apart from the crowd both sonically and aesthetically.
Nothing looks, or sounds, quite like the Alpha. A revolution when it launched and still an icon today. In cooperation with KesselsGranger DesignWorks a new instrument has been developed that shines on every stage. 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.
Most important is the instrument's sound. 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 producing bars meticulously precision tuned. A process gives our keyboards the most stable pitch and evenness of sound available, and allows Adams complete control over all aspects of the sound. The Alpha tuning method is unparalleled and stands for crystal clear projection in any occasion. Whether it’s a large concert hall or a small studio, it’s always spot-on. In the development of the 'Alpha tuning method' Adams focussed on articulation and projection. Don't you want your musical ideas to be heard?
