When I started reading about how much folks really liked their New Standard Basses (Cleveland Model) I thought my first upright bass was a real score -- I mean I paid less than $1800 for this bass new. But this is not a New Standard Cleveland, but a New Cleveland Bass by Cleveland Violins model CVLB 1103, which is a decent beginners model. But where did it come from and who makes it? (I know, I know, it comes from China and who cares who makes it, but I'm just curious). Anyone else familiar with these types of branded instruments? Can larger music stores order basses and put their names on them? thanks for your time. As an adult beginner I've enjoyed many of the postings on this forum.
