The violin, also known as a fiddle, is a string instrument, usually with four strings tuned in perfect fifths. The violin is first known in 16th-century Italy, with some further modifications occurring in the 18th and 19th centuries. It is the smallest, highest-pitched member of the violin family of string instruments, which also includes the viola, and the cello. The modern word derives from the Italian word violino, which literally means 'small viola'.
The violin is played by musicians in a wide variety of musical genres, including Baroque music, classical, jazz, folk music, rock and roll, and soft rock. The violin has come to be played in many non-Western music cultures all over the world.The violin is sometimes informally called a fiddle, regardless of the type of music played on it.
The parts of a violin are usually made from different types of wood (although electric violins may not be made of wood at all, since their sound may not be dependent on specific acoustic characteristics of the instrument's construction), and it is usually strung with gut, Perlon or other synthetic, or steel strings.
