Question
I have an Eastman Atkinson Model A101 - full double horn F/Bb-4 Valves. I cannot find any information about these horns - can you help?

Answer
Hi, I've not come across this horn. Confusingly there are two horn brands with the name Eastman, Andreas Eastman and Paul Eastman, both manufactured in China.

Atkinson is an independent US maker with a website here www.atkinsonhorns.com

This source http://faculty.evansville.edu/es76/horn%20manufacturers.htm suggests the A101 is a model of his.

But I'm not sure where your horn would get both the Eastman and Atkinson names.

I would use the contact link on the Atkinson website and ask the man himself. Maybe he designed a model for Eastman to manufacture. But which Eastman would also make a difference, Andreas are better horns than Paul...

Sorry not to be more help.
