Why Stradivarius violins are worth millions

    Violins aren't the only thing where a high price may not translate into quality. Watch our video on why expensive wine is for suckers:

  • It's also pretty cool that they are played to this day and not just in storage in someone's collection.

  • It roughly translates to a subconscious placebo effect 0001f3bb

  • So these are basically the valyrian steel of the music world 0001f6020001f602

  • Is it because the hype is real?

  • You completely failed to mention how the tight sound of the Stradivarius is caused SOLELY due to the incredibly dense grained European woods that they're crafted from. Timber that grew, and can't be recreated in any other way, by growing slowly for several centuries during Europe's "cool period" during the middle ages. Seriously, it didn't dawn on the journalist making this piece to question why no one else can build a "Strad" that sounds the exact same? Good job Vox :(

  • So when the taxi driver returned the violin, did the police close the case?

  • They are like legendary weapons in mmos.

  • this video fails to mention that the wood Stradivari used came from trees that went through abnormal seasons, which resulted in wood with very regular density, rather than the varying density that comes from trees which go through normal seasons. the regular density of the wood results in more faithful reproduction of vibrations, i.e., music.

  • Did the taxi driver return it with no strings attached?

  • Really? You're not even going to talk about the mini ice age? Or the legend of the secret location of trees used? Not even going to mention Andrea Amati? The Godfather of the Stradivari tradition? You disappoint me, Vox.

  • Joshua Bell played his 1713 Gibson ex Huberman Stradivarius, incognito, for 45 minutes one morning in a subway station in Washington D.C.

  • I'd rather have a guarneri

  • ok but that woman was talented as hell

  • do it like ling ling

  • There is a theory that Stradivarius violins sound different because of a sudden cold period in Italy that made the wood more dense and so the quality of sound better, and why their particular tone has been impossible to replicate. Scientists aren't sure if it's correct, but certainly an interesting theory I would have liked to see mentioned.

  • I still prefer when Yo Yo Ma went by his rap name, Yo Ma Ma.

  • 3$ Violin vs 16 million $ violin

  • Can we take a moment and appreciate the coolest name ever : "Urelli Corelli"???

  • It’s because pieces of the Roswell ship are hidden in them. Keep asking questions
