    Acoustic Centre were very helpful in responding straight away to my queries, and arranged for the mandolin to be posted out on the same day. My husband loved his Christmas present, great instrument and fantastic service.

    Pretty sweet Mandolin

    Good value for money as it feels like a more expensive instrument. More than enough volume for me, with a great, full sound. Feels like it will get better with age as well. Acoustic Centre was amazing (10 stars) - great, friendly advice and my questions were welcomed. Postage speed and packing quality were fantastic as well. Buy with confidence!

    I made an enquiry with the amazing team at the acoustic centre at 9am and they promptly answered all my questions and made me feel at ease. The beautiful mandolin ordered from them was setup the same way and 2 days later I received it in perfect playing order. The experience was first class and I highly recommend them.

    A true classic

    Looking on YouTube I watched videos of Eastman mandolins being made. Seeing the workshop the skill and old school ways of building instruments. I can not be happier with my Eastman I just love playing it. Great prices for such good quality.

    Great Mandolin!

    I have really enjoyed this instrument. After owning a cheap mandolin, I wanted to invest in something well made that also looked good so that I would actually want to play it! After quite a bit of research I settled on the Eastman MD515 as great value and playability. I've been enjoying playing it ever since.
