Eastman Frederich Wyss VL703 Violin
Frederich Wyss model VL703 violins are the pinnacle of modern European luthiery tradition. The finest available European tonewoods are meticulously crafted by makers working in the tradition established in Germany centuries ago. Tonally adjusted and hand-varnished by master luthiers in the Eastman Strings workshop, these instruments are nothing less than true professional models, worthy of the conservatory, or the concert stage. Their rich, mature sonority penetrates to the furthest reaches of the concert hall.
Designed for projection, Eastman's violins will make the soloist feel supported and comfortable performing in the largest of concert halls. With sophisticated and colorful tone, these violins will carry the virtuoso through the most difficult passages.
Made from the most sought after wood available, Eastman's tonewoods are hand selected from regions such as Germany and Italy. Through a natural aging process, these materials become more reliable and develop deep tonal characteristics that rival the greatest violins of the past.
As a family run business, we value the people that make us whole. Eastman's master luthiers have been a part of the Eastman family from the beginning, and it is through their commitment to the craft that the finest instruments can be sculpted with care and precision.
Just as it is important to properly age wood, a good finish takes time. Eastman's multi-layered oil varnish is patiently hand-applied over several months, leading to enhanced tonal characteristics and rich appearance. Their varnish shop then meticulously follows an antiquing process, creating a unique look for each violin.
