Jack Jammen: That's a really good idea but, a 52-pound violin would be a bear to play.

If the blind test showed that most musicians liked the newer violins then why don't you just put the Strads in a chipper-shredder?

Columbus, Stradivarius, Napoleon: I hate when they change the names of italians who are great and famous men to make them appear international figures Cristofo Colombo Stradivari Napoleone Bonaparte Italian from Corsica These are the actual names and they ought to be written and pronounced accordingly to the Italian original orthography Not to please those who desire to appropriate their historical fame Sorry

How much of an influence does the type of strings make to the sound? The strings back then weren't made the same way or with the same material, so how has it changed / influenced the sound?

Playing good music is by heart not by the brand name... Even you are holding the most expensive instrument in your hand, it doesn't mean u have the skill to over it. However, I really like the result that nobody can tell at all.... So can I say overall some people playing around the brand name more than playing the music..

It overall depends on the quality of the modern violins they were playing. If they would have played a mass produced violin, the sound quality would have been different and they would have preferred the strads. However, if they were playing violins made by professional string makers that hand craft the violins, then they may prefer the newer ones. It also depends on eh quality of wood for the sound, so if they violins that the Violinists were playing was the same quality of a strad, a difference may be marginal.

Why can’t they study one of these instruments and what makes them sound better. Like just make it the same shape and size and wood type and it should sound the same?
