Instruments by Eastman Strings exhibit
some of the highest quality of workmanship and tone available in
their range. We have been carrying them for several years, and continue
to be impressed by the consistency and excellence of these instruments.
Most players and luthiers agree that the tone colour of an instrument
depends a great deal on the materials and construction of the
instrument's top. The model 90 bass has a top carved of solid
Spruce so this model combines the sturdiness and cost savings
of a laminated bass with the improved sound of a carved top. Finished
with an amber colour varnish.
The model 120 bass is an upgrade to the 90 model. It comes with a top carved
of solid spruce and a flamed laminated back. This bass gives the tonal richness
of a solid carved spruce top with the beauty of flamed maple while maintaining
the benefits of the laminated back for harsher environments. Classical Varnish.
