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.
