Many violin makers in the last century were said to have made violins as good as Stradivari's but proven to be a fake as time passes. Most people agree the following statement: "After a period of playing (maybe 50-150 years), new violins will become mature and produce warmer, more projective and beautiful clear tone". Does it mean a violin which has potential to become a Strad should't have a loud, clear sound? How can I predict the new violin I buy today will sound like a Strad after 100-200years?
