Jay Haide Instruments

Jay Haide Instruments

Perfect for Student & Intermediates

For over 20 years we have been the UK distributor for Jay Haide, a US company owned by Jay Ifshin of  El Cerrito, California.

Jay Haide instruments are entirely handmade and are exceptionally well built, using excellent materials producing a tonal quality normally found in those costing much more.

We have had an enthusiastic response from players, makers and dealers confirming our belief that Jay Haide instruments are the best available for the student / intermediate range.

There are 3 choices of Jay Haide instrument,

– Plain (figured maple and standard red brown varnish)

– Superior (104 Highly figured maple, brushed oil varnish)

– Antique (High quality choice tonewoods with a beautifully applied antique finish)

All Jay Haide instruments are professionally set up, by our qualified staff, with a good quality bridge, soundpost, endpin and pegs.

The fingerboard and top nut are shaped appropriately and good quality strings i.e Dominant, Pirastro, Larsen and Jargar fitted.
