If you're looking for a warm, smooth amplified sound and all the traditional reference points of your acoustic violin, the gorgeous Zeta Jazz modern electric violin offers the best of both worlds. Zeta's popular Modern body shape gives you the full outlines of the violin's upper and lower bouts, while its justly-famous Jazz pickup bridge gives you a full, rich, almost honey-like tone that transmits very little bow noise to the amplifier. An ornate spalted flame maple top is accented beautifully by an outline of ebony binding, a look that Zeta calls 'Cowboy.'

The Jazz Bridge has 2 sensors per string, and is much thicker than ZETA's other bridges. It is height adjustable with a tiny allen wrench. There are two directional piezo pickups per string, perpendicular to each other. They read the movement of the string at 90 degree angles, effectively canceling out unwanted harmonics and bow noise. Each paired pickup signal is divided and run to separate internal gain controls so that the string level can be balanced for analog uses, while allowing the output to be separated cleanly for MIDI applications.

The Jazz bridge delivers a clean, electric violin tone that is favored by artists world-wide. The overall sound of the Jazz bridge is full and satisfying, and it transmits less bow change sound than then almost any other piezo transducer system. This instrument also has the '92 JLP Reissue preamp, designed by ZETA to replicate the classic tone Jean-Luc Ponty's original ZETA Jazz Fusion violins.

ZETA includes a beautifully-design custom case that isolates the violin from unnecessary movements during shipping, and does a great job of protecting the instrument.
