ZETA’s ‘Stage’ Mandolin Hits the Road
For 4 decades ZETA instruments have brought advanced form and function to the world of electric analog/digital violins, violas, cellos and basses. Add to that now . . . a stunning new Acoustic and Acoustic/Electric offering to the mandolin world.
ZETA’s new ‘A’ Style mandolin, the ‘Stage’, brings to market the 1st of it’s kind . . . a fully acoustic mandolin featuring ZETA’s proprietary Strados™ bridge pickup technology. The result is noise free amplification of the true mandolin sound and tone, ie no boom box effect common in all other mandolin pickups. Presented in a traditional format in both look and feel, ZETA’s new bridge is intended to please even the purest die-hard traditionalist. Combined with convenience of internal preamp, signal balancing and 1/4″ jack . . . ZETA’s acoustic/electric offering is a sure ‘Stage’ ready winner both plugged-in and unplugged.
Steve Carlson (current owner of ZETA Violins), well known for his Flatiron Mandolins (1980-1993), as well as his 7 years at Gibson resurrecting the Gibson mandolin line (1987-1993), is pleased to be back at it. Carlson, with over 10,000 mando builds already to his name. . . “I’m very happy to once again be building great mandolins in the Gallatin Valley of Montana, USA. ZETA’s pickups are world-class and I’ve been working to marry that technology to a great mandolin for sometime now. It’s been a bit of an effort to get it right, and of course that is ongoing and part of the mystique or appeal. Combine that effort and the technology available with the great staff we have and you have a pretty good formula for some awesome instruments. Myself, Helen, Bob, Bruce, Justin, Don, Doug . . . that’s more than 145 years combined building experience . . . wow . . . let’s go!”
