The Eastman Electro Acoustic VN305 violin keeps the natural warmth of a traditional violin while adding endless possibilities with the built in pickup.
The Eastman Electro Acoustic VN305 violin keeps the natural warmth of a traditional violin while adding edge and a whole new dimension of musical possibilities via electric options. The 305 violin is known for its strong tonal and visual presence which is a result of its materials, with a select spruce top and highly flamed maple back, ribs, and scroll. These vibrant tonewoods are treated with a hand-applied antique-style spirit varnish and include hand-carved ebony pegs, tailpiece and chinrest. 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 end button on the violins making it unnoticeable. 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. The Eastman Electro Acoustic VN305 violin is sold as an outfit with a BL301 Cadenza carbon bow and an Eastman Cordura Oblong case model CA1904.
