Antonio Stradivari is generally considered the greatest violin maker of all time. His violins are played by some of the top musicians in the world and sell for as much as $16 million. For centuries people have puzzled over what makes his violins so great and they are the most scientifically studied instruments in history. I spoke to two world class violinists who play Stradivarius violins as well as a violin-maker about what makes Stradivari so great.

Special thanks to Stefan Avalos for the Stradivari research footage.

I had an other violinist playing my violin, and they were praising it, but the moment I told them that it was an hundred dollar instrument, they changed there mind and it was no good any more. The cost of the instrument suddenly meant more than the sound it made.

time to get a new nickname. strats are not violins, they're guitars. I don't care what came first. I play both, I would call one of those violins overpriced for short

I'm not interested in age. People who tell me their age are silly. You're as old as you feel.
