The sound hole is the determining factor for the tone of your mandolin. F-Holes are known for a tight treble attack and a percussive chop ideal for loud ensemble settings. Oval-Hole mandolins possess throaty and vocal tonal characteristics that are wonderfully compatible with mandolin orchestras and Celtic/folk music.
All Eastman Guitars and Mandolins are built in our workshops in Beijing by our expert team of luthiers and crafts people.
Making instruments for a large variety of artists in a wide range of genres is a labor of love. Nothing makes us happier than seeing our favorite artists enjoying our instruments as much as we do.
