The open rail system of the Adams Artist Glockenspiel not only allows for the possibility of the foot operated damper system but also eliminates “case noise” that is normally produced by bells that are mounted in a box. The patent-pending reversible damper system allows the player to operate the pedal like a vibraphone (normal on / pedal down to release) or in a reverse position (pedal off / pedal down to dampen) depending on the musical necessity. Unique to this damper system is also the feature that the accidentals are still mounted in a normal stacked configuration, making the Adams glockenspiel the most playable and practical instrument available.
Adams Artist Series Glockenspiels are made of high quality steel that have been custom formulated especially for Adams. All bars are 1.25” wide (inch and a quarter) and 7/16” thick with the highest quality Satin Nickel Plating which prevents any bright glare under stage lighting.
