Founded in 1992, Eastman Strings continue to provide string instruments and accessories made with the traditions and quality materials associated with elite instruments, but at a price bracket accessible to more players. Crafting all their instruments and accessories by hand, Eastman Strings manufacture high quality instruments with many of the desirable attributes of the priceless instruments from the past.
The use of Maple and Spruce tone woods is a tried and tested combination on quality cellos. Maple and Spruce provide a focused and centered, powerful sound with plenty of body and tonal warmth, whilst also making a strong and durable instrument. The woods are hand selected based on their age, seasoned and then hand carved. This results in a cello which looks beautiful and is very hard wearing, helping the player develop their own unique sound.
Each Eastman Concertante Cello goes through a gold level set up, which ensures that the instrument is ready to go as soon as you receive it. Larsen Strings have been selected for their incredible power and expression. The instrument is completely stripped down and the nut is filed to the optimum height and spacing for the Larsen Strings and instrument. This results in ease of play whilst producing the maximum amount of resonance and projection. For more information on Larsen Strings, please click on the PDF Factsheet below the main product image.
