These instruments are priced for Instrument only, that is, not as an outfit with bow and case.

We can offer a package with a bow and case at a special price and you can choose the bow and case you want from our stock. Please ask us about this.

This violin is nicely made with correct dimensions and has been lightly distressed to simulate age and wear.

The varnish is light brown to amber and the violin needs to be seen to fully appreciate the colour and the simulated aging as the photos never give enough detail or obtain an exact colour.

Eastman supply these instruments with a Hill style ebony tailpiece, but we fit a Wittner Ultra tailpiece with integral adjusters, which for many violinists is preferred for easy accurate tuning. We can however supply the violin with the original Hill style ebony tailpiece with an adjuster for the E string which brings the price down a little.

We also include a good set of branded strings in our price (usually Pirastro or D'Addario)

A full luthior set up is of course also included in our price.

Violin set up
There is some misunderstanding about what this means or can mean. To some, it means standing the bridge, tuning the instrument and rosining the bow. This is not what it means to us, our set up does the following:

Sound post (the small cylinder of wood that stands inside the instrument)
The old factory sound post is removed and a new high quality post fitted accurately. This allows the instrument to be acoustically responsive as well as supporting the downward tension of the strings on the treble side.

This is thinned and shaped to allow the vibrations from the strings to be transferred into the top efficiently. The feet are also fitted accurately to the instrument top.
The curve on the top of the bridge is set correctly to allow clean bowing of the inner strings and at the same time the height above the fingerboard is set.

Top nut
Strings are evenly spaced at the correct overall distance apart and the strings are set at the correct height above the fingerboard, this allows the players fingers an even amount of room to 'stop' the strings cleanly.
Excess material is then removed from the top surface of the nut. Lastly the string slots are graphited to allow ease of tuning.

Saddle (where the tail piece gut or nylon passes over the instrument back edge)
This is smoothed and the height adjusted if necessary.

Often pegs are not perfectly shaped,which can lead to problems tuning the instrument. We remove the pegs, re-shape them as necessary then fit them precisely into the peg box using a reamer. Before final fitting, a peg compound is applied to the pegs to allow firm but smooth movement for accurate tuning.

This is shaped correctly so that the strings can vibrate freely without rattling against the fingerboard.


We usually include the Wittner Ultra tail piece which is  made in Germany using a hi-tech material and has four built in fine tuners. The Hill style Ebony tailpiece can be fitted if preferred though.
