Bought this Weltmeister Caprice 120bass in the former DDR. Good intonation and all decals and insignia like new. It was very hard to find the maker and his store. I believe he had many handcrafting years experience. ANY THOUGHTS!

Caprice was already after the GDR had consolidated companies in Klingenthal into Harmonawerke VEB if I remember correctly. Pretty workable instrument I think. Possibly from before the time they used plastic reedblocks and plastic bass mechanics but I am not sure.

Thanks for knowledgable info! The reeds are all wood blocks.
