What violins do the "famous" contemporary violinists own? I just wanted to know what "big" violinists are using nowaday.
**I know that Sarah Chang uses a VUILLAUME...NOT a del gesu (she performed here in hawaii in May, and i know the violin repairer/restorer that she went to while she was here, and she played for him and he told me it was a vuillaume)
**Hilary Hahn uses a vuillaume also...when she came to hawaii in 2002, she went to the same repair guy and she had a vuillaume (i saw/met her and she started performing in the shop right there! she performed excerpts of shostakovich, brahms, tchaikovsky, you name it!)
**Joshua Bell has the ex-huberman...
**Perlman has the Soil Strad...and that's all i know... (do you guys know about vengerov's violin? shaham?
