This Stradivarius violin, known as The Hammer, recently held the record for the amount paid for a musical instrument at $3.5 million, but has since been displaced by a violin crafted by one of Stradivarius' grandson's apprentices - Bartolomeo Giuseppe Antonio Guarnieri - which sold for $3.9 million in 2007.
