Ifshin Violins is proud to offer the Jay Haide line of violins, violas, cellos and now, string basses. Unlike many instruments in this price range, all Jay Haide instruments are hand-made of quality seasoned maple and spruce and have a tone quality and workmanship normally found in those costing much more. Violins, violas and cellos are available in four models. The Model 101 is an excellent choice for beginning or intermediate players. The à l'ancienne, Model 201 and Model 104 are made by more senior violin makers with finer quality aged wood for musicians requiring the best tone quality. The new Jay Haide à l'ancienne violins, violas, cellos and basses are brought to you after years of development. The varnish is a new formulation, carefully applied and beautifully antiqued giving each instrument the patina of age, so desired by both musicians and connoisseurs. And, they are as beautiful tonally as they are visually. The Jay Haide à l'ancienne has been designed for the advanced student and professional who needs an instrument that will compliment and enhance their artistic style.
