Jazz Bridge_String Sound Intermittent or Gone

Early ZETA Jazz bridges use the strings to pass the ground (coming from the tailpiece) to the pickup elements in the bridge. Most ‘sound’ issues related to an individual string arise from an intermittent ground problem. To check for a grounding issue simply touch a working string to the problem string using a penny or a paper clip (behind the bridge). If the sound of the problem string comes back then you can assume the problem string has lost its ground.

A signal element (single string pickup) ground can be lost for a couple reasons . . . a bad string for instance . . . but typically it is the string to tailpiece connection. Most often the strings fine tuner is the issue. Sometimes ground is lost when the fine tuner is turned in excessively (down to far). When this is the case, the fine point of the adjustment screw has lost its contact with the pivoting piece of the fine tuner and consequently its ground connection with the body of the tailpiece . . . so start by detuning the fine tuner. In some cases simple corrosion has broken the ground connection indicating a good cleaning is in order, and possibly a little filing or scraping of the corroded surface in question.

If ‘grounding’ the string does not fix the sound problem, then the pickup element itself may be the cause. Problems at the element could be a broken signal wire or solder joint . . . or a short between the ground and signal. Beyond this the preamp would be suspect. Repairs involving any of these issues would be best resolved at our ZETA shop. Simply fill out our ‘Repairs’ form (here) describing the problem in detail. Be sure to include your phone number and full address (for return of your instrument to you) and ship your instrument to us at the ZETA shop address.

If shipping from overseas be sure to document your shipment as an item being sent for repair.

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.

Tim loved the Roasted Jazz Fusion so much he ordered one and here we are 2 years later. The 'Gypsy Fiddler' inlay idea and drawing came courtesy of his then 12 year old daughter. Thank you Lucy for your inspirational work! We love projects like this.

Tim's concert is Sunday night at the Rialto Theater in Bozeman, 8:00 p.m. - A NIGHT OF GYPSY JAZZ WITH TIM KLIPHUIS AND ALFONSO PONTICELLI.

Next Tuesday morning about 11:00 a.m. we'll be doing a Facebook live broadcast from the ZETA shop here. Tim and Alfonso will be playing some favorites and taking requests. Hope you can join us.

ZETA's 'Roasted Maple' models are proving quite popular. We just finished processing our newest batch of Violin bodies featuring our latest shipment of roasted maple. This round we have some exquisite Quilted tops, along with both Flame and Birdseye. I've grouped the bodies in a variety of poses. Available this time is a nice mix and match of 4 & 5-strings models. What's your favorite body style? . . . wood?

There is 1 killer DblEdg DblLam Quilted Fusion that is certainly over-the-top, drop-dead . . . well you know . . . just AWESOME!

In total this batch gives us 5 new Classics, 5 Moderns, 5 Fusions, and 4 Fusion (sequentially matched) Double Lams.

Time to pick the Wood Type, Body Style, Finish Color, and Pickup of your dreams. Lets build it!
