Yes, I read the same article the other night. Makes you wonder what a flimsy sort of case he was using at the time ? Yes, it was in a case.
I was trying to find out about the strings the other day but I could not find too much information
Anne Sophie Mutter owns two Strads and here she appears to be endorsing Dominants.
I do know that some other violinists who have very expensive instruments (Stradivarius and Guarnerius ) use Dominants.
Hilary Hahn uses Dominants on her Viullaume violin...except for the E string, of course.
I would have thought there would be more information about this subject, especially forn the string maufactureres them selves eg "Itzhak Perlman uses our brand of strings etc. "
Most of these old violins have had their necks replaced so that they can be strung with higher tension steel strings.
PS Found it
The list shows that many of them use Dominants : Vengerov, Perlman, Shaham,Midori, Zukerman. ; they usually replace the E string with something better.
And this list shows that many of them either play Strads or a Guarneri (del Gesu)
