Rudoulf Doetsch instruments are made in the time-honored workshop tradition by a collaboration of family workshops in the small town of Erlangem Germany. Necks, scrolls, ribs, tops and backs are each carved by specialists in thier home workshops and are assembled into instruments in the main workshop. The instruments are then sent to the Eastman Strings workshop where specialists expertly adjust them for optimal response, tone and playability. Then the signature Rudoulf Doetsch shaded antique-style spirit varnish is hand-applied.
Wilhelm Klier instruments, like the Rudoulf Doetsch model, are crafted in Germany using the time-honored workshop tradition. These high-end instruments are made of older wood to achieve a warmer sound. They are highly flamed and varnished with a deep coloration to give an exciting, old-fashioned look. The sound is described as rounder than that of a new instrument, almost as if it had already been broken in. These instruments are an excellent upgrade for the advanced musician.
Jonathan Li instruments are crafted of the most select, stunning flamed maple back with the straight medium-grain spruce top. A refined, golden colored oil varnish enhances the tonal quality of this instrument. Each instrument is meticulously calibrated for optimum sound production. The fittings are boxed wood with a light colored wood trim.
Raul Emiliani are Eastman Strings top-of-the-line instruments. After bieng constructed in their master wrokshop in Beijing, they are then shipped to the United States where a master luthier applies a translucent amber oil varnish.

This Raul Emiliani instrument comes with a Certificate of Provenance signed by the supervising luthier.
