Jay Haide ‘Artistique a l’Ancienne’ Double Bass (Tim Toft Endorsement)
Harrison is proud to endorse Tim Toft Violins.
Harrison’s Jay Haide ‘Artistique a l’Ancienne’ double bass is a fully hand-carved solid wood bass with a graduated solid spruce top.
It’s backs and sides are hand-made from high quality fully seasoned flamed maple.
It has a wonderful quality of tone and the workmanship is amazing. Haide collaborated with master European luthiers who are known for their beautifully antiqued fine varnish techniques and although my bass looks like an old nineteenth century bass, of course it isn’t.
The Bridge is crafted by Tim Toft Violins (UK). Helen Pegram at Tim Toft has been Harrison’s double bass luthier since 2010 and has worked closely with Harrison in creating the tone and feel that Harrison requests.
