Eastman Strings’ commitment to Old World hand-craftsmanship and quality solid tonewoods and fittings begins right here with our entry level violins and violas. This model has received praise from the most exacting critics of all: school and private studio teachers. Not content to make a merely serviceable student violin and viola, we have crafted these instruments by hand from seasoned tonewoods, and installed top quality ebony fittings. Samuel Eastman model 80 violins and violas offer unparalleled quality of sound and playability in an entry level instrument.
