Jay Haide Stradivari Model Viola
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 Stradivari 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 Instrument set-up includes precisely fitted high quality ebony pegs, a select ebony fingerboard planed for proper scoop, a Despiau "Superieur" bridge, the lightweight Wittner tailpiece with four built-in fine tuners, and Dominant D, G and C strings, with a Jargar A string. We finish it by adding a Guarneri style chinrest made from select ebony.
