Stradivari Violin
Antonio Stradivari - Violin History


Brought from the middle east by Arab and Mediterranean traders, the first form of the violin arrive in Italy in 16th-century. After further modifications using borrowed ideas from other contemporary stringed instruments  between the 18th and 19th centuries, it served as the bases for the viola and the final form of the violin.

The most prized violin makers were the Stradivari, Guarneri and Amati families from the 16th to the 18th century in Brescia and Cremona and by Jacob Stainer in Austria. The quality of their sound is unmatched, according to the enthusiasts.

The violin became popular almost immediately, specially street musicians and the nobility.
