Eastman MD515 F-Style Mandolins

Eastman MD515 F-Style Mandolins

Eastman MD515 mandolins are a high quality yet reasonably priced rendering of the classic Gibson F-style instruments introduced in the 1920s during Lloyd Loar’s tenure at Gibson. One of Orville Gibson’s radical innovations was to bring violin family construction principles into the world of guitars and mandolins, leading directly to the arched top instruments that are commonplace today. The Eastman MD515 models are part of Eastman’s entry level instrument lines, but that doesn’t mean that they have skimped on quality, just on decoration.

Eastman DT30OM Double Top Orchestra Model

Eastman DT30OM Double Top Orchestra Model

The Eastman DT30OM is the second model in Eastman’s new Double Top line, bringing high end classical guitar technology to the steel string world – here in a classic Orchestra Model body design. The double top concept aims to allow a very thin, light and responsive top but with superior strength and stiffness. Here, thin layers of Sitka Spruce are bonded to a honeycomb Nomex core. Nomex is a Kevlar polymer and helps provide significant improvements in stiffness to weight ratios.

The PCH1 D model from Eastman guitars is an excellent choice for players looking for great sounding guitar at an affordable price. One of the main features on this model is the solid Sitka spruce top. The top or sound board is one of the main components in tone production on an acoustic guitar. While laminate tops have more durability they are stiff and don’t vibrate well. The solid top vibrates with the energy of the strings and produces tone.

Eastman MD605 A Style Mandolin, Classic Finish

Eastman MD605 A Style Mandolin, Classic Finish

The Eastman MD605 represents great value in a quality A-Style mandolin, built with solid woods and wrapped in a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Introduced in 1905 and based on Orville Gibson’s patent merging violin family techniques with guitar and mandolin construction, the A-Style mandolin has a distinctive teardrop shape and a carved top and back, with either F holes or an oval hole; the F hole provides somewhat more top end. Compared to the F style often seen in bluegrass bands, the A Style body shape has more pronounced midrange and fundamental, and a less percussive attack.
