Inspiration

At Z MANDOLINS we dreamed that fabled instrument designer and sound engineer Lloyd Loar got together with the legendary industrial and product designer Viktor Schreckengost to design a mandolin. We imagine that the new Z MANDOLIN is what they would have come up with.

Technology

Carbon fiber ZMANDOLINS are durable, lightweight and produce sound that is resonant, clear and projects in every direction. They are resistant to changes in humidity and temperature and are consistent in tone.

With an elegant and modern design, the Z MANDOLIN will appeal to the player with a love of tradition and an eye towards the future.

At Z Mandolins, our mission is to foster creativity while changing lives.

We are proud to say that — for every mandolin sold — Z Mandolins will make a $1000 donation to the continued funding of creative scholarship programs. Current recipients include programs such as the Lee & Ageleke Zapis Songwriting Scholarship at Belmont University and The International Bluegrass Music Association Foundation Scholarship endowment fund.
