ZETA shipments continue to be a varied selection of models with custom woods. Our PHAT series may have revealed a new ZETA favorite. We built a 2nd Tobacco Burst Modern with 2 necks (this time flame maple necks) only to sell it before we got to post it as a PHAT inventory item. Have to try again I guess. Our shipments went off to Sweden, Durham, NC (EVS), Washington, Florida, Illinois & Romania, (Fly Music). Enjoy your ZETA my friends!

ZETA Violins

I started playing (I mean learning) banjo when I was 18. My hero was John McEuen, banjo player and multi-instrumentalist with the Nitty-Gritty Dirt Band. 'Clinch Mtn. Backstep' and 'Randy Lynn Rag' ('Uncle Charlie' album) . . . unbelievable . . . I wore that album out. When I first saw the 'Dirt Band' perform live at Tulagi's on the Hill in Boulder, CO (circa 1972) . . . I could only marvel at John's banjo and fiddle playing. I grew to love that music more and more . . . and who could have guessed that love, that passion, would grow to mold my life and career.

John McEuen was first introduced to ZETA when John McFee (of the Doobie Brothers) loaned him his ZETA fiddle during a gig at Cheyenne Frontier days. It was the mid-80's and after that first introduction John pursued getting his own ZETA . . . and has been playing one ever since.

I've been following John's music and career for so many years, including the 'String Wizards', and enjoyed reading his recent book 'The Life I've Picked'. WOW - what a great read! So now here it is, ahh . . . well . . . ahh - a long time later, and as the owner of ZETA Violins I couldn't help but reach out and see if he was interested in replacing his old ZETA with one of our current Acoustic Pros. He thought it a grand idea and so his new ZETA fiddle was born (after a little collaboration of course).

In John's words:
" It is unusual, this fiddle. I almost feel like someone 'did a deal with the devil' as from the first bow draw I sounded better than I ever have, which continued as I played it .... and then tried it out in a concert. It continued to make it just seem easier, and like a great book, it was hard to put down! Then taking it to its first show yesterday (Sat., 3/15), at the incredible Folly Theater in Kansas City, many people went out of their way to say 'that's a great fiddle'... Rodney Dillard (I had him on the show too) even commented that I had never sounded better and he has heard me since the beginning. Thank you Zeta/Steve for making my music , and because of it my show, better!" John McEuen…

. . . and thank you John McEuen . . . a full 'Circle' for me for sure my friend. Hope to see you on the road one of these days.

ZETA's trip to NAMM this year was a great time hangin' with ZETA Artist Patrick Contreras. We enjoyed meeting up with Matt Bell of the Electric Violin Shop . . . and the many players and 'Violin People' at Matt's 'Violinist Meet-Up'.

Check out some of Patrick's Jammin' here: vimeo.com/315541491

ZETA also spent some time with Rob and Allison Turner at EMG . . . going over specs for the new ZETA Mandolin Pickup & Preamp.

The whole NAMM trip was topped off with a wonderful Italian dinner at Carolina's . . . where Patrick treated us to an evening of . . . well . . . the many sounds of Patrick Contreras. WOW!

ZETA January shipments were out the door just as we left for NAMM in Anaheim, CA. This years early shipments included our 1st Jean-Luc Ponty models for 2019 . . . shipping to Fly Music in Romania (2-Imbus and 1 Fusion). Shipping to Electric Violin Shop in Durham, NC was an Acoustic Pro 4 and Pro 5 . . . plus a spectacular special order custom JV45 Trans-Blue Black Edge Burst, Flame Maple Top/Neck, Dbl-Edg, Dbl-Lam, with the 'Heartbeat' inlay in Silver Wire. A big 'BIG' thanks goes out to ZETA Artist Nicolas Draps for allowing us to use his personal design as a new ZETA insignia. I LOVE IT! Thank you Nico! (check out his work here: www.nicodraps.com/)

It was just in December we made the 1st Trans-Top Green with Black Body/Neck and I'm lovin' that combo. Our 1st in 2019 is a Trans-Red Black Body/Neck heading out to Russia.

Sometimes when your not sure which model you want to order we send out a demo so you can try the 'sound and feel' of a particular model over another . . . perhaps its Jazz vs Strados, Imbus vs Fusion, Wide vs Sandard or Slim, etc. Our final violin shipment was just that . . . a Reissue Black Imbus to Pennsylvania. Can't wait to make his custom. Enjoy your ZETA my friends!

What are the reasons for the prices for these violins? They are excellent violins, but however.... Why such prices? Just for the brand? The components of the sound card or the bridge are not so expensive ...

ZETA's MIDI 5-String Jazz Mando has left the building. Greg Floor picked up his custom Roasted Birdseye Double Lam this week. 1st pic below is Greg's 1st person view when he opened the case last Thursday . . . and it was all smiles.
We spent hours playing with & dialing in his GR-55 and then it was back to Utah. Greg later reported: "I opened the case on Friday and turned on the GR-55 . . . next thing I knew it was 4 hours later!"
Greg also picked up ZETA's 1st retrofit Mando bridge. I installed it on his Gibson 'Sam Bush' model. I've spent the last two years developing this bridge and let me tell you . . . there is no boom box effect (problem with all other mando pickups) . . . the bridge action adjusts up and down easily while under tension . . . and best of all . . . the amplified tone of the mandolin directly corresponds to its acoustic tone.
I told Greg it just didn't seem right him getting both these great instruments at the same time . . . but he insisted he could handle it.
It was a busy and rewarding week here at ZETA.

Happy Mother's Day!

Just recently on the Montana PBS show '11th & Grant' our ZETA C_Octave (Strados) was featured played by local fiddler Chelsea Hunt. The show, featuring songwriter Jim Averitt, aired 2 of the 'Cello' pieces but did not air my favorite . . . 'Mother'. So here is the live feed broadcast for all to enjoy on this special day. I love the warmth of our chin-cello as it reminds me of the many warm and comforting memories of my own mother.

and a heart you had to know"
