Yes, our ZETA Violas are going out the door. 1st one this week. A beautiful Cremona Burst Spalted Maple SA24 heading to Utah. The sound is quite distinct and magical . . . full bodied and rich . . . very well balanced. Interesting to me the spectrum produced with the longer scale length of the Viola . . . 'C' string 'BIG'!
Next week . . . a Chocolate Burst Roasted Birdseye/Flame with Roasted Birdseye/Flame Neck SA24 . . . is in setup now and will be ready to ship to EVS in Durham, NC. ... See MoreSee Less
Coming down the pike this week . . . a trio of one-of-a-kind 'Cowboys', all 5-Strings. I particularly love this ebony-trim styling and always enjoy the process of custom orders. Beginning with your top/back/neck selection . . . looking through and communicating all the possibilities . . . yes, I love that.
1st up: This Flame Koa cowboy with its Flame Roasted Maple back and neck is stunning. Anyone thinkin' BROWN case as the tie on the tux for this beauty!
2nd: The intricate figuring in the Flame Spalted Maple is themed as the 'Dream Catcher' . . . can you see why? Picture it with a new intricate 'Kachina' and 'Dream Catcher' inlay . . . oh man, can't wait to see this unfold.
3rd: 'Saguaro Royal' . . . that's not easy to say. Inlay design not finished yet . . . what do you see? It's a desert cactus surprise. ... See MoreSee Less
A diverse week here at ZETA. 1st out was a Jazz Reissue Imbus White JV45 off to Romania. Followed by a Jazz Acoustic Pro 5-String with MIDI off to Australia. Topped off with a nice 3-pak to Electric Violin Shop in Durham, NC. EVS was feeling venturesome . . . trying out both our Brown and Buckskin cases with this shipment of a JLP5, a JV44 Black and a JV45 Black. I'm thinkin' that Buckskin would look nice with some leather fringe work. Daniel Boone played fiddle didn't he? . . . don't know. ... See MoreSee Less

Special treat this week . . . Evan Garr joins Jean-Luc Ponty on stage, Wednesday June 21st at Chene Park - Detroit, MI. If you're in the area you don't want to miss this.
For the past few weeks Evan's been trying out one of ZETA's Jazz Modern C_Octave's and he's sent me a couple of videos. One is an improv over JLP's 'Mystical Adventures Part V'. As you know, Evan is a 'monster' player, with awesome command of his bow . . . and watching him play gave me an idea. He's been playing our JV45 Jazz Fusion Violin for 15 years and I knew he'd prefer ZETA's Fusion styling in his Octave. So I got busy . . . and here's a peek at Evan's new C_Octave . . . a custom Trans-Blue Flame Maple 'Monster' JV45.
Good luck this week Evan on your own 'Mystical Adventure' with Jean-Luc! . . . and enjoy yourself my friend. ... See MoreSee Less
From Dallas, TX . . . Marek Eneti shares with us his rock violin cover (a scorching hot shred) of Joe Satriani's 1987 hit 'Surfing with the Alien'. Marek is running his custom ZETA SV24 ('Gabriel's Wings') wireless and through the GR-55 using the 'Heavy Guitar' patch. I've been looking forward to Marek's session recording ever since we shipped out this beauty in January. Marek said he was going into the studio to crank up the GR-55 . . . and that he did. FANTASTIC my friend!
Many many favorites played that night at Big Sky Resort but 'Halloween Rehearsal', a 1987 Russ Barenberg tune, stands out . . . nice tune and a very interesting year indeed . . . aah the memories. Our new ZETA mando gets a work out on this one. ... See MoreSee Less
Ironically . . .10,000 mandolins and 24 years further on down the road . . . I reckon it's time for the '1st true ZETA built acoustic mandolin in history' . . . and for me . . . #10,000 and 1 . . . or somewhere there a-bouts. My good bud Tom Murphy has been breaking this pony in and together with the able assistance from the other 'Lone Mountain Trio' members, John Lowell on Guitar and Kevin Fabozzi on Mando-Cello . . . a beautiful night up on Lone Mountain at Big Sky Resort, Montana . . . was the perfect setting for a good work out and test ride. Giddy-Up . . . ... See MoreSee Less

You know when you're feeling lonely so you decide to have a party and invite just your Cello friends over. Things are going well and then right when someone says, 'Let's take a group picture!", Roasted Charlie shows up with his 2nd cousin . . . you know, Billy Bob Bass. All you want is a pic with your best Cello buds . . . but to be polite and inclusive . . . you take a 2nd picture. Then the Alder twins shout, 'We need a diversity shot!' . . . and before you know it Charlie and Bob need a portrait to update their Facebook profile. Finally the jokes start flying, 'What do you get when you cross a Roasted Fusion Cello with a Roasted Fusion Bass? . . . a Roasted Fusion Baby' . . . and that's when you realize it's just not that bad being alone sometimes. ...

Thank you for putting yourself on Facebook. I never do facebook but after Dez showed me U on there I can't seem to stay off. I enjoy hearing and seeing you. You are Fantastic keep it up. Luv ya. Auntie B.
I love the processes involved in the start of a new batch. The sorting and matching of beautiful wood for . . . color, flame & grain. Then the layout and band-sawing in prep for machining, shaping & gluing. ZETA's next batch of Roasted Flame and Birdseye for Jazz Fusions and Jazz Classics is well on its way . . . oh boy!
