The Eastman Strings workshop operates in precisely the same manner as late 19th century European workshops. Chisels, knives, and scrapers, in the hands of outstandingly gifted craftspeople, are the primary tools used to create these modern instruments. These techniques impart each model with a beautiful voice and appearance that can only be achieved by hand. As in the shops of master luthiers for the past five hundred years, Eastman Strings honors this tradition everyday.
The traditional workshop methods we employ provide today's string players with advantages: quality instruments, bows, and cases available at affordable prices. This makes music making more accessible to beginners, aspiring artists and professionals.
Our motto is Modern Instruments; Old‑Fashioned Quality which allows you, the musician, teacher or dealer to follow your passion in music with absolute confidence. We wish you the best in your workshop, stage, or teaching studio as we continue to pay homage to the traditions of our predecessors.
