“These hand made instruments are by far the best in their price range.”
John Reid (Leader of the English Haydn Orchestra)
The Maggini style viola features a broad, rich sound with fantastic projection. Used by many professional, international performers.
These violas are a testament to the quality produced by world-class European luthiers Jay Ifshin and Haide Lin.
Each viola is distinct and created with meticulous attention to detail. Jay Haide violas are elegantly antiqued using specially formulated varnish, and feature intricately carved scrolls, f-holes, top and back archings, and is set up with the highest quality strings and fittings.
With warmth and tonal qualities reminiscent of old European instruments, Jay Haide instruments have a better sound quality than instruments three times their price. These violins are used by many professional string players in orchestras whilst on tour. The L’Ancienne range is the only choice for serious musicians and connoisseurs alike.
