Auction house: We found Titanic violin

Here is the violin that was played by the bandmaster of the Titanic as it sank. The violin was believed lost in the 1912 disaster, but auctioneers Henry Aldridge & Son say the instrument unearthed in 2006 has undergone rigorous testing and proven to be the one played by Wallace Hartley, the leader of the band.
