Zeta Strados Modern 5-string electric violin, "The Journey"

Out of stock

This beautiful Zeta Strados Modern 5-string electric violin is a special commemorative Zeta violin called 'The Journey', which features an inlay with symbolism from the company's past (read below for details). It has a gorgeous roasted flamed maple "Cremona burst" top and roasted flamed maple neck.

Own a piece of electric violin history! This special edition Strados Modern 5-string, called 'The Journey', commemorates the resurrection of ZETA violins. The first of two special finger board inlays features an eagle and two mountain peaks in the background and the numbers 34 and 21. The number 34 is how many years ago ZETA was founded. 21 is the number of years since new ZETA owner Steve Carlson last manufactured musical instruments as a mandolin maker. The mountain peaks are the most recognizable from ZETA's previous location in Arizona and its new location in Montana. The second inlay is of a mouse on the end button, with its tail running off the button and up the neck towards the peg box.

A five-string Zeta Strados pickup system, with two piezo elements in each "finger" of the bridge, provides the strong output and slightly edgy sound that made the signature Strados tone famous. For players who love the Strados sound, there's really no substitute -- nothing else sounds quite like the Strados bridge. This is one of the newer Strados Modern violins, with an active pickup powered by a single 9-volt battery.

This instrument has the popular "Modern" body, like an asymmetrical hourglass with more sand in the bottom than the top, and is designed to drive the Zeta MIDI controllers, so it has the combo jack, with both standard 1/4" and 8-pin DIN MIDI output jacks. If you want to use this violin with a Zeta Synthony or Synthony II controller (or any MIDI controller that uses a standard 13-pin DIN input), you'll also need a special cable, with an 8-pin DIN locking collar male connector on one end, and a 13-pin DIN male adapter on the other.

Price includes a Zeta-branded hard plastic violin-shaped case by SKB with a burgundy interior and black exterior, with a bright teal Zeta logo.
