The violin is a wooden string instrument with a hollow wooden body. It is the smallest and highest-pitched instrument in the family. The violin typically has four strings, (although some have five), usually tuned in perfect fifths with notes G3, D4, A4, E5, and is most played by drawing a bow across its strings. It can also be played by plucking the strings with the fingers and striking the strings with the wooden side of the bow.
Violins are most prominent in the Western classical tradition, both in ensembles and are used as solo instruments. Violins are also in many varieties of folk music and jazz. The violin is also used in many non-Western music cultures, such as Indian and Middle Eastern music. The name fiddle is often used regardless of the type of music played on it.
The violin was first documented in 16th-century Italy. Further modifications occurred in the 18th and 19th centuries to give the instrument a more powerful sound and projection. It served as the basis for the development of other stringed instruments, such as the viola.
