Adams Musical Instruments | Alpha Z Frame

Following its US debut during the PASIC, the World’s Premier Drum & Percussion Festival, the new Alpha Z Frame made its European lauch during the Adams International Percussion Festival. Designed by KesselsGranger DesignWorks for Adams signature marimba artist Nancy Zeltsman, the Z Frame integrates the instrument’s support section with the flowing rail and resonator design for a cohesive and complete look. The design also offers great stability. The characteristic Z frame (which coincidentally matches the artist’s surname) is made from a single casting of aluminium, whereas the wing shaped wheel supports are made from solid oak. Nancy Zeltsman, Chair of Percussion / Marimba at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee, says “The most important thing to me is creative inspiration, and I’m feeling it with the Adams marimba, and the sleek modern design of the Alpha Z!”

MusikMesse 2015 | Adams Bogdan Bacanu Signature marimba

The past edition of the Frankfurt Musikmesse (15 to 18 April 2015) was the podium for the presentation of the newest signature marimba of Adams Musical Instruments, designed by KesselsGranger DesignWorks for the world famous Romanian marimba artist Bogdan Bacanu.

The marimba was presented in the centre of Adams’ impressive stand and therefore held an absolute top position in the world’s largest international trade fair for musical instruments and the music industry.

The exclusive Bogdan Bacanu Signature-marimba is a textbook example of quality and creativity from the team of Limburg companies that were involved in the design, development and production.

Adams, the leading manufacturer of musical instruments from the Dutch-Limburg Ittervoort yet again signed a successful collaboration with KesselsGranger DesignWorks for the design of the magnificent instrument that Bogdan Bacanu will accompany on the best music podiums in the world. “The Bogdan Bacanu Signature-marimba is powerful, fresh and elegant.”

The flowing lines of the Bogdan Bacanu Signature-marimba were finished with an innovative high gloss paint developed by the firm Sterkendries John Maaseik. The high quality coating is the first in its sort to be applied to a marimba.

The musical debut of the instrument will take place in the weekend of 25 and 26 April in the Romanian Atheneum in Bucharest, in front of a select delegation of VIP invitees.
