About Zed Music Distribution
Zed Music Distribution (ZMD) was founded by Managing Director Zoe Ashfield in 2015. With a dual honours degree in Music Technology and Business Management, Zoe set about establishing the first UK dealers for Cole Clark Guitars. ZMD grew quickly with new retailers and secured Flaxwood Electric Guitars in 2016 to extend the product range into the electric guitar world.
The family run business was joined by Chris Mariani in 2016 as national account manager. Ormsby Guitars joined the ZMD portfolio at the end of 2016 and proved an immediate success with stores across the UK, building on the phenomenal social media and enormous following Perry Ormsby has developed for Ormsby guitars the growth of this fantastic brand continues.
NAMM January 2017 saw the announcement of several new brands for ZMD, one of which being Ortega. A fantastic range of instruments, across a multitude of price points, Ortega gave ZMD the product range to approach even more UK instrument retailers. The addition of The Guitar Strap Co. and Outlaw effects completed the ZMD offering to meet every retailer demand.
Based in Sevenoaks, Kent, the ZMD team continues to hunt for new and innovative products to bring to the UK market. We pride ourselves in finding and representing only the most innovative and unique products for distribution in the United Kingdom. As one of the first distributors to utilise social media in the introduction of new products to a consumer market, ZMD has taken musical instrument distribution into the 21st century and set a new standard.
