The beautiful Eastman Electro Acoustic Jean-Pierre Lupot viola keeps the natural warmth of a traditional viola while adding endless electric possibilities.
The Eastman Electro Acoustic Jean-Pierre Lupot viola keeps the natural warmth of a traditional viola while adding edge and a whole new dimension of musical possibilities. The Jean-Pierre Lupot viola is made with a well flamed maple back and a select spruce top. The elegantly antiqued spirit varnish has reddish pigment with deep red wine hues. The unique pickup system is embedded into the spruce top of the instrument before varnishing with no disturbance to the bridge. Eastman’s proprietary 3.5 mm jack is used as the endbutton, making it easily accessible and out of the way. Each Electro Acoustic instrument comes with a lightweight, low-profile cable that provides a seamless connection to your amplifier or individual playing setup, making this the easiest and most comfortable design to “plug in” on the market.
Plug in. Naturally.
Electro Acoustic Series.
Eastman’s Electro Acoustic step up violas maintain the traditional sound and style of an acoustic viola while capturing the warm and resonant qualities of its tonewoods. Eastman’s unique pickup system is embedded into the top of the instrument, and Eastman’s proprietary 3.5 mm jack makes it almost unnoticeable.
The result is a viola that looks, feels, and sounds like a traditional acoustic instrument, while opening up new possibilities for creative musical exploration.
