    So, today I had to explain to a friend (a trumpet player himself) that the Bach Strad that he owns was, in fact, not made by Antonio Stradivari, the famous Italian luthier. He seemed a bit disappointed when he learned this, I did all I could to not laugh.

    My son had a similar experience last week - he showed his teacher some photos of our trumpets and mentioned mine was the Stradivarius. The teacher was awed that we had a trumpet some hundreds of years old... ...and what was perhaps funnier was that she then referred to the photo of my old student horn (missing 1/2 its lacquer) as the Strad, since it was clearly "older".

    Is Antonio related to Vincent? I dont believe I know of him.
