The Jay Haide á l'ancienne cellos are brought to you after years of development. The varnish is a new formulation, carefully applied and beautifully antiqued giving each instrument the patina of age, so desired by both musicians and connoisseurs. They are as beautiful tonally as they are visually. The Jay Haide á l'ancienne has been designed for the advanced student and professional who needs an instrument that will compliment and enhance their artistic style.
L'ancienne cellos are available in either the Strad model (narrower, streamlined body, with a brighter sound), or the wider bodied Montagnana model, with a broad, rich, dark sound.
