..This Violin is an acoustical phenomenom ...and I think, even today, people do not understand acoustics ... so well. One thing I have learned, with the violin, is that every millimeter, everything that you do to the bridge; If you shave a millimeter from the side of the bridge; the sound changes. If you take,... have a little bit of wood (changed) from any part of the violin, the whole balance changes. So, um, it is incredible!
..Or even change this piece, or this piece... it is all balanced, and, very delicate, and so this is something that Stradivarius was; even a genius.
Quote from Joshua Bell in movie: "Stradivari: Search for Perfection" (2003) [at 23:35-24:35]
