Mr. Lane is an accomplished luthier and bassist living in Brooklyn, NY since 2007. His curiosity in music and how it's made has led him across the U.S.
from New Mexico to Michigan to New York City.
Working for 10 years in one of New York City's most bustling and renowned stringed instrument shops gave Zach invaluable experience, working with many celebrated performers and the finest instruments and bows from around the globe.
In 2018 Zach started his own shop to concentrate on instrument and bow making as well as high end repair and restoration. He has had the privilege of serving wonderful performers from ensembles like: The Knights, The Met Opera, Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra, ACME ensemble, numerous broadway performers, and last but not least, many heavily recorded jazz artists, improvising musicians and recording artists who play at the Village Vanguard, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Blue Note, Smalls Jazz Club and Barbes etc.
He is currently a member of the Violin Society of America, The International Society of Bassists, and attended the 2019 Oberlin Restoration Workshop, focusing on bow restoration and making. Most recently Zach was a featured guest on the 2021 luthiers panel discussion at the virtual, International Society of Bassists Convention. He attended the 2022 Oberlin Bow Makers Workshop and received training from some highly respected makers from around the globe.
He continues his study of the craft of instrument and bow making and strives to create the finest sounding and playing instruments on the market.
In addition to work, Zach tries to play the bass as much as possible, and record music in his home studio, and occasionally with some bands. He also enjoys natural wine :)
