Martin and I together run 'Martin Swan Violins'. We generally have a happy and supportive working (and indeed marital) relationship. However, there is one thing I do rather hold against him: we used to have a beautiful collection of violin mutes and one day he went and sold them on ebay. Without consultation! And for peanuts.
I am slowly re-building the collection - we buy a lot of antique violins and every so often we find a mute in the case. This is the lost collection: http://martinswanviolins.com/sales/?p=5123
