The Eastman VB105 is a hybrid double bass with carved Spruce front, carved Maple back and laminate ribs. It has had its varnish hand applied which gives it a lovely visual finish. The carved front and back give the bass a great sound whilst the laminate ribs improve the robustness of the bass.
The work we’ve carried out on this new Eastman VB105 double bass in detail is as follows:
- Reshape top nut
- Shoot fingerboard
- Cut and fit grade A quality bridge
- Fit bridge adjusters to bridge
(We don’t use off the shelf adjustable bridges because of quality. We pick a normal bridge and then make it adjustable with components that work well together)
- Fit Endpin unit
- Fit Tailpiece
- Fit Thomastik Spirocore strings
- Refit the Soundpost
- Fit a Realist Lifeline pickup
- Fit a Realist docking station volume control
The Eastman VB105 double bass is made by Eastman Strings and finished off by our luthier.
