Details

Eastman are a brand that have quietly produced fantastic instruments over the past decade. It's fair to say that they have built themselves up into an internationally renowned alternative to the larger US manufacturers - We're looking at you Gibson and Martin.

Indeed, this solid mahogany series of ukuleles is distinctly vintage in feel and sound. Careful design choices go a long way in helping these stand out from the pack. For example, Eastman ukes are possibly the only instruments at this price that use an intricate and delicate nitro-cellulose finish rather than modern harder polyester gloss. This means that the instrument sounds and feels a little bit tight at first but opens up as it is played in like a vintage Martin or Gibson uke.

Also, note how gorgeous the mahogany looks. Chinese factory instruments rarely feature such select woods. The rosewood fingerboard and bridge complete the ensemble. Have you have been hankering for a Pono but wanted something slightly more complex sounding rooted in tradition? Eastman are here to fill that gap.

As Eastman say...

"Each ukulele features all solid wood construction with the top, back & sides made from the finest mahogany finished in a high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer. The body is matched with rosewood binding and the fretboard is inlaid with abalone pearl snowflakes. Appointments include a bone saddle and nut, and classic Grover tuning machine heads."
