    I haven't heard of this maker, but I've heard of this dealer. Eastern European factory, good workmanship, and not worth more than $5000. It might sound good, it might not. Anybody here worked on these instruments?
  3. Who is the dealer?
    I've seen him run auctions for violins, violas and cellos also. Which college(s) did he teach at?

    I check out a bass by cal;in Voultur the other day, it,s a decent bass, nothing exceptional about it, it has a sort of vintage finish, the sound was kind of green, and maybe a little bit on the boomy side, I am pretty sure that it had Tomastiks on. based on what I saw and heard I myself would save some money get something better, or just try to find one of those Asian newer basses or a Christopher for less cash.
