Jay Haide instruments are instruments developed as a collaboration between American and Chinese luthiers. 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. They are striking in both their tonal quality as well as their fine varnish. The varnish used is carefully applied and beautifully antiqued giving each instrument the patina of age, so desired by both musicians and connoisseurs.
Sullivan Violins offers various Jay Haide’s models such as Guarneri, Guadagnini, Balestrieri, Stradivarius, Ruggeri, Maggini (viola only) as well as Baroque violins and cellos.
All Haide instruments are all set up at Sullivan Violins. Sullivan Violins expert set up is critical to maximizing the tonal capabilities and playability of these fine instruments.
