About this Episode

How can you tell a violin is what the owner says it is? What qualifies a person as an expert? Why are some people in the field reluctant to tell you a violin is a fake, even when they know it as a fact? Rozie and Chris discuss the Voller Brothers and discuss their hand in the infamous fake - the Balfour Strad. Special guest Ben Hebbert, violin expert. For our coda, Rozie and Jerry judge Chris' luthier jokes.
