Pearl's Academy Series brings the world-renowned quality and Adams sound to the student percussionist.
Perfect for school or home use, the Adams Academy Series 3.5 octave Xylophone Series maximizes the learning experience with quality from the very first note. The AXLD35 was designed to bring a new level of accessibility and quality to the playing experience of young percussionists.
Academy Series instruments feature a patent-pending Integrated Resonator Rail System that provides not only a quality bar suspension and box resonator format, but also the rigid Aluminum Beam structure that makes these instruments the most durable on the market. The xylophone also features light rosewood bars for a fantastic bright tone. It also gives players a true full-sized bar instrument that sounds in the correct octave to learn and grow with. Every bar of the Academy 3.5 octave xylophone is hand-adjusted through the sixth overtone using the same bar tuning methods as the top of the line Adams Artist Series instruments.
A carry handle is provided to make transport easy, and a soft case will be available separately for those who need to protect their instruments from the elements. In addition, a drop cover and one pair of mallets are provided so students can begin playing as soon as the instrument is set-up.
