Jack Benny demonstrates how to identify a Stradivarius

March 16, 2013 at 4:52 PM

Some people play instruments that used to belong to great virtuosi. The instrument I play is famous for a different reason... here, Jack Benny shows us how to tell a cheap instrument from a (gasp) $30,000 Stradivarius!

Nathan, is THIS what you're playing??? Omigosh, that's so cool! And I just love all of Jack Benny's violin skits. Love all his stuff.

What fun to watch, and so cool to think that's the instrument you're playing (correct me if I'm wrong here and I'm sounding really stupid...). And the best part is finding a Strad for only $30,000. Such a bargain!
