Dr. Zaret is known throughout the musical world for his remarkable Bass Bar invention that dramatically improves the power and tonal qualities of all stringed instruments. You will hear this when you watch and listen to the videos on his ten varieties of student and professional violins.
More recently, and after years of research, he has changed the future of bow rehairing with the development of Zarelon Acoustic Bow Hair, an acoustically improved material that works better and lasts longer, perhaps even for the lifetime of a bow.
Dr. Zaret has Bachelors and Masters degrees from Juilliard and a Ph.D. in Violin Performance along with 40 years experience as a concertmaster and college professor. His combination of playing ability, craftsmanship and scientific approach gives him a deep understanding of string musicians’ needs and makes him unique in his field.
