Introducing Heifetz Violins®

Jascha Heifetz® Violins From Meisel are authorized bench copies of the original violin of 1740 by Giuseppe Guarneri (del Gesu), which was obtained by Jascha Heifetz in 1922 and favored by him for 65 years in concert and recording sessions.

The violins feature beautifully figured European wood for the backs, sides and necks, while the top wood is straight grained European spruce. The warm shaded varnish is highlighted by the glowing reflective ground beneath it. These models produce great tonal character and response and each instrument has been hand crafted by a master luthier.

In playing tests by master class students and their teacher in both chamber music and concert hall venues, the violins were judged to produce the very best results and to have the most appealing appearance of any other instruments available at comparable prices.
