    There's a reason why they cost so much: you just can't get the same sound from other violins.  I prefer the coarser Guarneri sound (brought to all by Heifetz), but many of the Strads have a silkiness and a response that is truly unparalleled.  What I would give for a three-hour session with one!

      I'm sorry I forgot the name of it.  It had been in a museum for 100 years and had a name. What struck me about it was how prototypical it was. It felt good.
