Eastman VB90 Double Bass

This Eastman VB90 double bass is available in 3/4 and 1/2 sizes, it has been fully setup by our luthier and is in stock, available to try out. The bass is of a hybrid construction having a solid top, laminate back, and ribs. It is offered for sale as an outfit which includes a case and a composite bow.

The work carried out by our luthier to this bass includes:

  • Adjustment of the top nut
  • Shooting the fingerboard
  • Cutting and fitting the bridge
  • Adjustment and fitting of the tailpiece
  • Adjustment and fitting of the soundpost

Most players and luthiers agree that the tone colour of an instrument will depend on the materials and construction of the instrument’s top. The VB90 model bass has a carved top of solid spruce, so this model combines the sturdiness and cost savings of a laminated bass with the improved sound of a carved top.

  • Fully carved solid spruce top
  • Sturdy laminated back and ribs
  • Solid ebony fingerboard
  • Solid brass tuning machines
  • Outfit includes Presto™ padded bag and K.Holtz FG bow (French frog)
