What are the stradavanious violins?
A Stradivarius is a stringed instrument built by members of the Stradivari family, particularly Antonio Stradivari. The bowed instruments are famous for the quality of their sound, which has defied attempts to explain or reproduce. The name "Stradivarius" has also become a superlative applied to designate excellence. To be called "the Stradivari" of any field is to be deemed the finest there is.

What type of wood did Antonio Stradivari use to make his violins?
Stradivari used what most of the masters used, maple for back sides neck and scroll, and spruce for the top. He did apparently engage in some experimentation as a very few of his instruments had the back sides and scroll made of poplar. I found this in the book: " Antonio Stradivari, His Life and Work: 1644-1737By William Henry Hill, Arthur Frederick Hill, Alfred Ebsworth Hill
