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.


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.

All profits from Z MANDOLINS will support the Lee & Ageleke Zapis Songwriting Scholarship at Belmont University’s School of Music in Nashville.
