The VL500 is a beautiful advancing violin with a select spruce top, highly flamed maple back and rich varnish. The instrument is finished with Eastman's signature eye for detail and high quality fittings and strings.
This instrument comes with our 'Symphony' Setup where our master store luthier will optimise the instruments sound to become the very best that the timbers will allow. This normally involves thinning and re-shaping of the maple bridge, tweaking the position of the soundpost, reaming and soaping the pegs for easy tuning and in some cases adjustments to the neck and nut.
