Yair Hod Fainas

Born in Jerusalem, Yair Hod Fainas creates violins, violas and cellos
in the center of Paris France. Instruments of his are owned and played
by renowned soloist musicians such as Judith Ingolfsson, Alena Baeva,
Dimitri Maslennikov, Adrien Boisseau (Ebene Quartet), Emil Rovner,
Sebastien Hurtaud, Jan Orawiec and other principle players in the
world’s leading orchestras.

Since an early age Yair was enthralled by music.  At the age of 17 he
made the decision to build quartet instruments as a profession and his
life became intertwined with music and musicians ever since. He
started his apprenticeship in Israel with master violin maker Gregory
Shteinas and then, after serving in the Israeli army, entered the
famous national French violin making school, Jean Baptiste Vuillaume,
in Mirecourt, where he obtained a “Diplôme de métier d’Art” (summa cum
laude).

Creating a transparent and easy conduit for the musician’s
expressiveness being his highest objective Yair offers only
empirically tested models.  His historically inspired instruments and
personal models were formed and certified in the crucible of the
concert hall.
