Adams Musical Instruments are the perfect example of what happens when two destinies collide. The company was created by André Adams, a Dutch engineer who enjoyed music as a hobby. His profession and pastime first crossed paths in 1970 when he began repairing brass instruments, and that started the metaphorical snowball rolling. Today, Adams is a leading manufacturer of orchestral percussion and marching brass, with a selection of instruments that can only be fairly described as world-class. Just browse the selection and see for yourself: there's a lot to appreciate about Adams products.
If you're in a band, the first things to draw your attention will probably be the Adams MB1 Series Marching Bb Baritone, MM1 Series Marching F Mellophone and all the other marching brass in this section. On the other hand, if you're new to band and wondering what sets a 'marching' brass instrument apart, look to the MF1 Series Marching Bb French Horn and MTB1 Series Marching BBb Tuba for the best examples to answer your question. They look quite a bit different from their standard cousins, and that's because they're designed to be lighter and better balanced for carrying through long routines.
Of course, not everything Adams makes is designed to be carried. Orchestral percussion like the Professional Series Generation II Cambered Copper Timpani will be at home on the stage or in the orchestra pit instead. That set is joined by other melodic percussion, including the Adams Academy 3.3 Padouk Marimba with Resonators, as well as some relevant accessories like the Academy Series Marimba Soft Case with Wheels. And these are only to name a few examples of what Adams has to offer.
In the end, André Adams wasn't content to be just a musician or just an engineer - he combined the two and started a career that's made waves in the music world by producing this lineup of brass and percussion instruments. And thanks to those, it's easy to make a few waves of your own by playing one. Whether you're in the marching band or the orchestra, you have more than a few options to choose from with Adams Musical Instruments.
