About Jay Haide:

These violins are a great choice for the beginning or intermediate student. Since 1992, the Jay Haide 101 has been our most popular model, both for students and as second or “picnic” violins for the more advanced player. Attractively priced, these instruments offer real value for the money. They are beautifully made and have an attractive uniform golden red varnish similar to some of the contemporary Cremona makers.

Back in 1992, Jay Ifshin, master violin maker and owner of Ifshin Violins, a growing and important violin shop in Berkeley, California, was becoming frustrated with the inconsistent quality of the new instruments they were purchasing from suppliers. He felt that it would be possible to establish a workshop to make consistently high quality instruments that he could offer at a more attractive price than anything he could purchase through a supplier or even directly from the maker. Haide Lin had been Jay’s shop foreman in Berkeley for several years. He had been trained as a violin maker in Guangzhou, China and was already a master maker when he came to this country and went to work at Ifshin Violins. He and Jay set up the workshop together. The name Jay Haide was chosen as a combination of the founder’s names, Jay Ifshin and Haide Lin. People still come in and ask to meet “Mr. Jay Haide”.
