Quality Student Instrument
The Eastman 80 Double Bass is an affordable and reliable outfit that includes a PrestoTM padded bag and K.Holtz FG bow - everything that you need to get started with your new instrument. The body consists of a lightweight and flexible laminate spruce top and a laminate maple back, a popular choice for string instruments because of its durability, versatility and acoustic properties.
Featuring a genuine solid ebony fingerboard and fittings that are all extremely strong, smooth and hard wearing. The endpin and tailpiece are well made and reliable and the German tooled solid brass tuners make tuning simple.
Rich, Deep Sound
The combination of spruce, maple and ebony used on the Eastman 80 Double Bass produces a deep, rich tone that blends well with ensembles and orchestras. The careful design and build ensures a warm and even sound throughout the registers, allowing the player to concentrate purely on performance and technique.
Sized for Children
This Double bass is 1/2 size which is ideal for children and fits comfortably without effort allowing them to concentrate solely on their preparation. The bridge provides optimum height above the fingerboard making it suitable for both bowing and plucking.
Includes Bow and Case
A beginner shouldn't need to invest in separate pieces of equipment if they find the right package. This Eastman 80 Double Bass comes with a bow and case so you'll have everything you need to get started. Waste no time and play your instrument straight from the box. No inexperienced player could master a good technique using poor equipment so Eastman came up with a durable but affordable bow just like the bass it comes with. The bow has great balance and is lightweight so easy for a new player to get used to. Made from genuine unbleached Mongolian horsehair this bow produces smooth and clean sounds.
The soft case features a superior padded interior to help keep the treasured instrument safer for longer and protected during travel – perfect for a student carrying their instrument to and from lessons. This case includes backpack straps to ease the load of that new, heavy double bass. The case also has a canvas cover exterior which protects against poor weather conditions, a zip to secure the instrument inside the case and music pockets so the avid learner has space for all of their sheet music.
