This is a fascinating look at what makes a Strad a Strad. Owning a Luis & Clark carbon fiber violin, a 7-string electric v-neck fiddle called the Viper, a German early post-war hand-made fiddle and a Stainer reproduction from 1924, Netherlands, I take a special interest in this topic. My carbon fiber Coda bow is the best of what is new and remarkable--but the old hand-made wooden instruments really do have a warmer sound.

Beautiful article. The image of Einstein on the fiddle is just too perfect.

Love this post, I had no idea the Einstein played the violin but it's easy to believe as Einstein not only had a great understanding of physics but of the arts and matters of the soul's evolution. Thank you for this.
