Competing Interests

TMB is a sole proprietorship company (Borman Violins, Fayetteville, Arkansas, United States of America) and RJ is a sole proprietorship company (Cremonese Vioolbouw Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands). TMB received 300 for publication of an article studying a violin using CT and modal analysis in Strad in 2011. As ‘product in development’, TMB is planning to open a company to provide confidential instrument evaluation reports in 2012, in collaboration with BCS. This does not alter the authors' adherence to all the PLOS ONE policies on sharing data and materials.
