My father played viola in a number of symphonies as well as playing baroque instruments. The eight string "lung"viola is his own design, and is one of a kind. The lung viola has a rich viola sound and plays easily. The lower sympathetic strings can be used or muted as desired.

Jay made a number of custom baroqe instruments including a violetta, and several viola d' amore. Jay served an LDS mission to the Phillipines and his peg box design was influenced by some of the dragon carvings he saw there. Jay's lung viola is an icon of his outstanding craftsmanship and creative ability.
