@bastardsheep @elronxenu Exactly. The feel of the instrument is a thing too. And do you need to see to play? All this is quite difficult.

Things I definitely did not just say: “Stradivarius violins are a bit shit.”

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@duckbytheoboe @TwoSetViolin Oh I am not complaining about Stradivarius’ instruments! Very sweet. But for violins Guaneri was the shit.

@TomSear Suggest it to them! Bu they are not cello players, so they would screw it up. It’d be a fun video.

@duckbytheoboe @TwoSetViolin And I must admit, having heard them in the flesh, the Stradivarius sounds thin by comparison.
