Details

Eastman are a brand that have quietly produced fantastic instruments over the past decade and 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 and some careful design choices go a long way in helping these stand out from the pack. For example the 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. Maybe you have been hankering for a Pono but wanted something slightly more complex sounding, and rooted in tradition. Eastman are here to fill that gap.

This Tenor is gorgeous and soulful - even slightly reflective and pensive in its delivery. If this Ukulele liked to drink, it would drink the finest neat Whisky with a single ice cube in front of a fire.

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 nut and classic Grover tuning machines.
