Description

Eastman VB90 Double Bass

This 3/4 Size Eastman VB90 double bass 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.

Our luthier’s setup work 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 color of an instrument will depend a great deal 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 PrestoTM padded bag and K.Holtz FG bow (French frog)

Available to order in sizes 7/8 – 1/8

5-string available in 7/8 size to order only.
