Product code: XSLRD35 Manufacturer: Adams

The Adams Academy desktop xylophone is a carefully engineered percussion instrument designed for young students, but the level of precision and craftsmanship employed in its construction makes it suitable for advanced players too. It is portable, compact, and very reasonably priced, making it especially good for musicians with a small budget or limited space for practice.

Each of its 44 note bars is made from light rosewood, a wood that is often used for professional level xylophones owing to its distinctive timbre and beautiful grain patterns. Every bar is hand tuned and precisely adjusted through to the 6th overtone for a truly astounding tone. The xylophone is ‘octave tuned’ (European) rather than ‘quint tuned’ (American) and has a range of three and a half octaves from F4-C8 where A4 = 442Hz.

There are no tubular resonators below the bars meaning the XSLRD35 xylophone can be played on a flat surface such as a table or floor. The innovative and surprisingly lightweight box format frame is built on Adams’ integrated resonator rail system that acts as both an extra sturdy base for the bars and an amplifying chamber shaped to provide optimum balance and sustain. It also features a convenient handle on the front making it easy for one person to carry around.

A simple X style height adjustable keyboard stand is included as standard along with a thin dust cover and a pair of high quality XB6 mallets.
