C_Octaves dominated our activity this week . . . shipping a beautiful TransBlue Jazz Modern SV45 off to EVS, recording samples from Evan Garr, and Montana PBS television's '11th & Grant' broadcast with Chelsea Hunt playing 2 tunes with a ZETA Burl Redwood Cowgirl C_Octave.
Evan Garr created a beautiful loop sample of One Republic's "Secrets" for me. I've combined it here with his cover of Stanley Clarke's "La Cancion de Sofia". Hope you enjoy Evan's monster ability, his 'monster' ZETA Octave, and the beautiful rendition of both tunes. ZETA's C_Octave . . . I love the many possibilities . . . thanks Evan!
It was a regular Ponty Party this week here at ZETA . . . shipping off 4 JLP5's in total. Well . . . technically only 3 shipped and 1 was picked up in person. Congrats Dennis!

WOW! Thank you so much Patrick A. Contreras for sharing your George Harrison cover with us . . . your 1st of many great videos to come, I hope. I can see your adjusting well to your signature ZETA 5-string. Beautiful my friend. Maybe send 'El Violin' back and I'll add a thorn and some tears to your Rose . . . ... See MoreSee Less
I have an old JV44 (early 2000s (newer volume knob; bridge w/ newer footing; non-imbus neck)) - totally functional and playable, but has a few chips/scratches and the paint is really worn out. Would you be able to quote me what it would cost to sand & re-paint? I can send pictures.
Wow! I should have mine updated. I had #24 or 25, JV5-string, but it had to be replaced because the neck was cracked in shipping. I stopped playing when my midi controller died and no one could fix it around here. I needed this motivation! Beautiful!
How much does this Zeta! Thank you ! ... (Y)
Is this a jazz fusion? Is it available with regular pegs too?
Wow that turned out great. I’ve gone one to send to you! Definitely need to make this happen with mine!
Got my 5 string in 91. Still playing it. No major problems. Best violin ever.
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

Finished up a quite busy week here at the ZETA shop . . . with 2 SV24's, 1 JV44, and 1 JLP5 all heading out to the Electric Violin Shop in Durham, NC. Wanting to beat the early snow we're having here in Montana, an SV25 jetted off to Siberia . . . say what.
Plus plus plus . . . 3 beautiful JLP5's and a JV45 Roasted Chocolate left for Fly Music in Romania. ... See MoreSee Less
Some new Trans-Color models coming down the pike. Given all the fires here in the northwest, and now the rain and snow putting them out . . . we've dubbed the 1st one here: 'Smokey Mountain Memories' . . . then a couple trans-blues with that 'watery' feel, and our first trans-blue/black burst Fusion.
Not wanting you to be caught off guard when these beauties arrive at the Electric Violin Shop in Durham, NC next week . . . we've sent along some extra protection for you and the crew at EVS. Your gonna need it!
JV44 Flame Maple Cherry Burst, JV45 Flame Maple Trans-Blue, SV24 Roasted Flame Maple Chocolate, EV4 Acoustic Pro.
Busy week here at ZETA . . . shipping off a number of beauties and specials . . . including some customer upgrades. 1st out was a gorgeous Amboyna Burl JV44, heading off to Canada. Then a Trans-Blue Flame Maple SV45 C_Octave going to Germany. Next a Double-Edge_Double-Lam JV45 Roasted Flame Maple Chocolate out to Dubai. 1st time CV44 Roasted Maple Jazz Classic Chocolate stateside bound to EVS in Durham, NC . . . stunning she was. A White JV45 also to EVS and a Black JV44 off to Romania. We upgraded an original Acoustic Pro5 to a Jazz Bridge with full MIDI (Romania), and lastly a full rehab to Ms. Jo A-Ram's original EV Modern, including new bridge, inlaid initials, monogram and tailpiece . . . off to South Korea.
Nice! What is the bridge on the Strados Modern in natural brown wood?

Mugu, Isn't Zeta the violin Jean Luc Ponty plays with?
Love the blue.
I think a big percent of Zeta Violins are sold in Romania,am I right?almost any musician here must have one.Nice work and sound,however😍
I got to see Evan's octave violin last night. SOOO pretty!!!
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.
