Historic Speedmodelling: Stradivari

December 18, 1737

The legendary violin maker Antonio Stradivari dies. During his lifetime he had build around 1100 violins. Today around 650 Instruments are still preserved.

However the design of todays Violin is based on his design. There were only minor changes made to make the violin louder to suit todays larger concert halls.
