The Eastman VB200 Orchestral Double Bass is a standard fully carved violin pattern VB200 double bass that we’ve set up specifically for Orchestral playing. The result is fantastic. The photographs are actual instrument photos, not stock photos. Having had all of the necessary Luthier work carried out by us already, the VB200 Orchestral bass is available for viewing, playing and immediate sale at our Derbyshire location.
This is a brand new Eastman VB200 double bass that we’ve set up predominantly for Orchestral playing.
Included in Addition to the Standard VB200 Double Bass
- Thomastik Belcanto strings – Great for Arco playing
- An adjustable bridge – To give you the flexibility to change string height
Eastman VB200 Orchestral Bass Setup
The VB200 Orchestral bass has been set up from the outset as an Orchestral double bass. We’ve performed our complete set up on the bass which has included:
- Reshaping the top nut
- Shooting the fingerboard
- Refitting the soundpost
- Recutting and fitting an adjustable bridge
- Fitting of an Ebony tailpiece with a high-quality steel rope tail wire.
We’ve strung the bass with Thomastik Belcanto double bass strings as they are great Orchestral Strings, and we’ve set the bass up with these strings in mind. However, there are other string options available upon request.
This double bass is made by Eastman Strings and completed in our UK workshop.
