Set up an In-Home Trial with this cello!
We became acquainted with the Jay Haide "l'ancienne" model instruments a few years ago, and quickly realized they fit in very nicely with various lines of instruments we carry. The reason we like them is because they are made well, use good quality materials, and are extremely consistent in tone quality, all at a very reasonable price point.
The Jay Haide "Statue Model" cello is an excellent balance of price/tone/quality offered from the firm of Ifshin Violin Shop. The cello is made from all European tonewoods, which are of plain to lightly flamed maple and spruce. Compared to some of the other "l"ancienne" models, the Statue model is lightly antiqued - which I personally prefer. Tonally, these instruments fall within the same tone-world as the other models we have played - easy to play, quick response, even tone, and warm.
All Jay Haide "l'ancienne" instruments are professionally set up in our shop (customization is possible, like adding perfection pegs, posture pegs, etc). Suitable for the advancing or advanced student, they come in 2 larger models (Montagnana/Ruggieri) and a Strad model. We usually have a couple available at any time - give us a call to have us send you a customer sound sample and photographs.
