    Stradivari's secret was a concept?

    1. Well, there used to be a bloke who thought more or less on the same lines and made for great entertainment during concerts. 2. Your ears are probably just fine. You seem quite discriminating. 3. I don't know which recording you heard but Menuhin played in all probability one of five violins. All excellent, none "blah". One is a tad quiet and one a tad stiff and young people such as yourself are mostly used hearing him on the DG which is neither. 4. Hard to believe but not impossible. I'm not familiar with Szeryng's violin but a pro of his standing would surely keep the violin in top shape. There is however, a modern player who took some four years to have a tonal issue attended to - it can happen. 5. Possible, but I doubt. It's what you heard objectively at that moment. 6. Hillary Hahn does not play with a smooth creamy tone. She's an artist of great sincerity.

    Well, yes you did. And then insisted you're right for a couple of posts. That's disrespectful. Now, you go discuss away and don't mind me or David. We're good chums just pocking fun at each other. As we usually do.

    But if I do that how am I going to out your other personas ?

    No !!! Do tell !!! Were you related ? Business good ? But please, be fair : not knowing what every despicable "David Burgess" on the Planet does or did hardly qualifies me for clueless. One has only that much time on one's hands...

    They were two different people. David, that was an easy one...

    No flattery. I called it as I heard it. And I don't think it's about Sam and you. I am perfectly aware there are lots of really good makers who make really nice instruments. Better than "really nice".

    Posting under your own name "which is easily researchable" brought up a violin maker, a murdered gay rights lawyer and a murderer. Memory serving me well... To put it mildly, it's not always of advantage. Now, tell me more about the plastic bag with raw liver - in detail. These things interest me and I am glad we can bond over something. Not sheep though. You'll forever be the only who took a picture of himself with a sheep coming out of his pants and posted it on MN. See, while I might, you're for sure.

    Yep, but it seems not in the right order. I think you should move on.
