Jay Haide Vuillaume Model

Jay Haide Vuillaume Model

Vuillaume model violins and cellos: The elegant style of Vuillaume’s instruments has inspired us to create a new model in his honor. Using European wood, the violins are based on his Guarneri model violin, the cello on his Strad pattern. The varnish imitates his unique lustrous golden hue. The tone is powerful, easily producing colors from the entire spectrum.
