4/4 (full size), Crafted in 2021, New

A tender, agreeable and cooperative cello that is perfectly even and balanced in the upper registers. It's already nicely open with a deep C and a sweet A. With an open tenor, it's easy to pull desperation out of this one, making it an excellent student instrument that can easily take a serious student through High School.  Heavy bear-claw figuring on the top make this a unique looking instrument too.

Eastman 405s are one of our most popular cellos - and for good reason! They are responsive enough for the beginning cellist yet won't disappoint the more advanced player. This model is the top-of-the-line in Andreas Eastman’s Advanced Series. Each instrument is hand carved with a premium spruce top and highly-flamed maple back, ribs, and scroll. They are then finished using a special varnishing process that emulates the best early-20th century German workshops. This multi-layered, hand-applied spirit varnish adds visual depth while enhancing the cellos overall sound.

Eastman instruments are all solid carved of properly aged woods, and hand-finished in the traditional manner of old European craftsmen. Chisels, knives, and scrapers, in the hands of outstandingly gifted craftspeople, are the primary tools used to create these modern instruments. By the time an Eastman Strings instrument reaches the player, dozens of expert craftspeople have had a hand in bringing it to the peak of its sound, playability, and beauty.

The centuries-old instrument building methods used in the workshop in Beijing allows Eastman Strings to provide high-quality, hand-made instruments at very affordable prices. A number of the Eastman cello models receive our Best for Beginners and Budget-Minded badges due to their ease of play, quality of craftsmanship, and affordability. Eastman is by far our most popular line of cellos, violins and violas. You really can’t go wrong with an Eastman instrument.

Cello comes with a hard case and your choice of bow.

All cellos are setup or adjusted by Linda and played before shipped, guaranteed.
