Jay Haide Violins & Outfits

Jay Haide Balestrieri model Violin

Balestrieri Model

The Jay Haide Modele artistique à l'ancienne family of instruments was developed over many years of collaboration between violin makers Jay Ifshin and Haide Lin, who studied the varnish techniques of master European luthiers.

The distinctive appearance of these instruments is achieved by artful shading and antiquing of the specially formulated varnish to give each instrument the patina of age, so desired by both musicians and connoisseurs.

This Balestrieri model aims to reproduce features and nuances of original models of these instruments, with meticulous attention to scroll and f-hole carving, top and back archings, and wear-patterns of the varnish.

The instruments have a remarkably mature, rich sound for their price range. The Johnson String set-up includes precisely fitted high quality ebony pegs, a select ebony fingerboard planed for proper scoop, a Despiau "Superieur" bridge, your choice of the lightweight Wittner tailpiece with four built-in fine tuners or an ebony tailpiece with the single "E" string tuner, and Dominant A, D and G strings, with a Gold Label E string.

We finish it by adding a Guarneri style chinrest made from select ebony.
