Do all Stradivarii sound the same?

Recommended Posts


As others have stated aptly, it's the player more than the instrument. However, a superb musician will get the best from the best instrument.

I play bass, very badly indeed. Currently, a Stagg and a battered but rather lovely Fender fretless reside here. I make the same awful sound with both. A decent musician pal has been here a few times and the difference with him playing is palpable.

All Stradivarii sound the same in space. :D

It is all rather academic, it can be worth £50 for all I care because no amount of money would make me sell it unless we were really desperate. It's a Manchester instrument, rather than from the London workshop. I love it, which probably comes across.

Mmm we all love our violins...

Happy christmas, happy new year and happy playing...
