Jay Haide: Fine Handmade Instruments

J.H. Violins

From Jay Haide: For the Jay Haide instruments, we start by searching and examining wood from many sources and from the most experienced wood cutters. We spent countless hours making sure that the results would be an instrument we would be proud to give our name to. Over the years, we have steadily changed and improved the à l'ancienne, making sure that we are constantly looking forward towards improvement, not resting on our success.

Since its introduction eight years ago, the à l'ancienne violins have become the flagship of the Jay Haide fleet. They are envied and copied by other makers, but as much as they have tried, none have come close to equaling them.

The latest in our line of a l'ancienne instruments, the Statue Model cellos are handmade in our workshop by expert luthiers. Aged European tonewood produces a beautifully layered, rich sonority, whose depth and color is brought to life by its powerful resonance. The delicate flaming of the maple on the back of each instrument accentuates the richness and complexity of the auburn shades of our brand new varnish formula. The Statue Model cellos are available in either the Strad model (narrower, streamlined body, with a brighter sound), Ruggieri model, or the wider bodied Montagnana model, with a broad, rich, dark sound.
