Eastman celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and it has been quite a journey. We’ve learned a great deal over these past three decades and have taken the sum of that knowledge and instilled it into our latest instrument—the Eastman 30th Anniversary Model 830.

Our 30th Anniversary basses are made from our finest European tonewood, with the choice of maple or poplar ribs and backs. We’ve also applied our decades worth of varnish mastering to create an instrument that sounds as stunning as it looks. Celebrate an important milestone with us and try this crowning achievement from our workshop. We know you’ll enjoy it.
