Strad is Dead – Consider a Modern Classic
We live in the new golden age of violin making. I have so many incredibly talented violin maker colleagues around the globe. And I’m dying to see what their personal model would sound and look like! Strad is of course a great maker to learn from, but why are so many devoting the entire career to making copies? We’ve lost the diversity of violin making that was alive in Italy around 16-1700. Every maker and city had it’s own style. I’m hoping to see that again. More style, more personality and more focus on what really matters. The Sound.
