    There's a student model upright for sale locally that I MAY consider for my first upright to get me started. The guy sent me a photo of the sticker on the inside. It says it's a "Salvatore Cadoni, Model VB80"

    I searched TB and Google but nothing of any substance came up. Anyone hear of these?

    Asking price is $800.

    Eastman makes a bass called the VB80 (see here). I think I've seen an Eastman bass in the past that was labeled under a music shop's brand - something along the lines of "Adjusted for XYZ in the workshop of Eastman Strings". You can find the Cadoni and Eastman basses online here. I couldn't tell you if they are the same or not.

    Thanks Brad. That makes sense. The shop where he purchased the bass carries Eastman. That gives me a start to see what the TB gurus have to say about Eastman.
