Eastman 305 Series Violas

Eastman 305 Series Violas are popular with teachers and players as reliable, affordable instruments for the advancing student.

The tone quality is somewhat dark, mellow and clear with plenty of projection, and the response is quick for easy playability.

305 Series Violas feature hand-applied, dark red-brown antiqued varnish. High quality ebony pegs are precisely fitted and the fingerboard is planed for proper scoop. The popular Wittner tailpiece with four fine-tuners built-in is used. A high quality Despiau bridge carved by our workshop is accurately fitted.

We use Dominant D, G and C strings, with a Jargar A string. We finish it by adding a Guarneri style chinrest made from select ebony.
