Scott talks to biochemistry professor Joseph Nagyvary of Texas A&M University about a type of violin he believes is superior even to the prized Stradivarius: the Guarneri. Produced by a neighbor and rival of Stradivari, a Guarneri is worth several million dollars and produces a stronger sound than the Stradivarius.
