About Eastman Strings
Founded in 1992, Eastman Strings continue to provide string instruments and accessories made in the tradition of elite instruments, but at a price bracket accessible to more players. Crafting all their instruments and accessories by hand, Eastman manufacture high quality string equipment with desirable attributes of the priceless instruments from the past.
Highly Flamed Maple Back and Ribs and Select Spruce Top
The use of Maple and Spruce is a tried and tested combination used in quality violins. This combination of Maple and Spruce produces a focused and centered, powerful sound with plenty of body and tonal warmth, and contributes to a strong and durable build. The woods are hand selected based on their age, seasoned, and then hand carved into works of art. This results in a hardwearing violin that allow the player to develop their own unique full-bodied sound.
Gold Level Set Up with Larsen Virtuoso Strings
Each Eastman Concertante Violin goes through a gold level set up, which ensures that it's ready to go straight away. *Larsen's Virtuoso strings have been chosen for their unique design to combine subtlety and projection with a slightly lower tension. The instrument is completely stripped down and the nut is filed to the optimum height and spacing for the Virtuoso strings and the instrument. This results in ease of play for the performer, whilst producing the maximum amount of resonance and projection. Combined with a High Grade Despiau Bridge, this creates incredibly playability without causing issues to intonation.
Larsen Virtuoso Violin strings are modern multi-stranded synthetic core strings. Although their overall tension is moderate, they are capable of delivering a richly shaded sound with excellent volume. Made in Denmark
Offered in medium and strong tensions, both a bit lower than traditional equivalent gauges. The medium tension strings provide exceptional string response, playability and sound modulation capability. The strong version is more "solistic" and focused in sound, with greater bow resistance. Virtuoso tends to suit warm to neutral sounding instruments.
