The secret of Eastman's success is actually no secret at all. There are no computerized machines or industrial routers in their stringed instrument workshop. They employ good hands and sharp tools, just as master workshops did 100 years ago. Talented craftspeople handcraft Eastman stringed instruments in precisely the same manner as the famous German and French workshops did a century ago. But, the story of Eastman does not stop with stringed instruments. In addition to fine violins, stringed instruments, guitars and mandolins, Eastman has become a major name in the band instrument business. Eastman builds woodwind and brass instruments and has continued the tradition of high quality at a low cost. In the future you can be sure that Eastman will continue its fine tradition of craftsmanship and exceptional value in every Eastman instrument produced.
