The Andreas Eastman model 80 bows are made of sustainable, tropical wood (not pernambuco). The selection process emphasizes straightness of grain, uniformity of color, density and strength, and absence of blemishes. Hand-crafted with great attention to detail, these are fine nickel-mounted bows and are either wrapped with silver wire or imitation whalebone. The model 80 is no longer made of pernambuco, which is becoming rare and endangered. In an effort towards more ecological practices, these sticks instead are from a more sustainable wood.
