Acoustic Pro

0041AcousPro_4Str_VarThe Zeta Acoustic Pro violins, available in both 4 and 5 string models, are professional quality instruments designed especially for use in amplified performances where a traditional acoustic body violin is needed. A top-quality and versatile acoustic-electric violin, the Acoustic Pro is adaptable to diverse playing styles and delivers true acoustic tone without feedback problems.

Only the finest acoustic violin bodies are used in the making of Zeta’s acoustic-electric instruments. All Zeta acoustic violins feature solid spruce tops, solid figured maple back & sides, figured maple necks, ebony fingerboards and a traditional varnish finish.

EV_BridgeAt Zeta we make our own hard-maple acoustic violin bridges as part of the Zeta ‘EV’ bridge pickup manufacturing process. This keeps us in control of the quality we desire, thus providing the consistency the Zeta sound demands.

When your music requires the traditional look, feel and sound of an acoustic violin, Zeta’s Acoustic Pro has you covered. Whether unplugged or plugged-in, Zeta delivers the sound you need.

Chnrst_TpcWe also make our own ebony tailpieces and chinrests which come standard on all Zeta instruments. Unique among acoustic-electric violins, the Acoustic Pro features a specially designed internal preamp system that increases the power of the pickup signal. This high-tech innovation provides a wide range of amplification flexibility, supporting a variety of tonal characteristics suitable to diverse playing techniques and styles of music. An internal 9-volt battery provides over 1,000 hours of service on average and is flush mounted in a special high-impact plastic case located on the rear side of the lower bout of the violin for easy access and battery changes. A volume knob is mounted on the top of the violin, to the right of the bridge, with the 1/4″ output jack mounted on the side of the violin, to the left of the chinrest.

CsInt_AcousIncluded with the purchase of all Zeta violins is our new Custom ZETA case which features two large internal storage areas for strings, rosin, tuner, shoulder rest, headphones, etc. Additionally, on the outside of the case, are two zippered pockets with ample storage for all cables, music, etc.

BowSpinrsZeta’s custom case is available in Black or Brown and includes 2 of our custom ebony bow spinners . . . made by us . . . with either Heart Abalone, Gold Pearl, or White Pearl diamond inlay.

Today I have the privilege of sharing the most recent work of Dr. Paul Miller, music theorist, musicologist and assistant Professor of Musicianship at Duquesne University. Following Dr. Miller's purchase of his ZETA Jazz 5-string violin in 2016, Paul was inspired to tackle Bach as never before . . . and his project: 'J.S. Bach: Six Suites for Solo Electric Violin' is a musical tour-de-force . . . a stunning achievement. More in depth details about Dr. Miller's projects found here: and here: I encourage you to check out the scope of his work.

but for now . . . enjoy Telemann's Concerto . . . ZETA style!
. . . and thank you Dr. Miller . . . each of you.

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 McEuenโ€ฆ

. . . 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'.

Meeting with our friends, customers & vendors is always a good time. This year Patrick and ZETA spent a good amount of time testing equipment and lookin' for a good jam.

Check out some of Patrick's Jammin' here:

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:

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!

I wish I had one !!!!


So beautiful!!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

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 ...

Where can I listen to its sound?



Zeta classic! Beautiful and great electric violin!
