More about Violins VS Fiddles:

Violin and Fiddle are very similar. However, there are some technical differences in how the instrument is set up, and how it is played. It is a violin if you play classical European music (Mozart, Bach, Beethoven) or are part of a classical symphony orchestra. It’s a fiddle if you play traditional folk or country music. Violins normally have gut or synthetic gut strings, while fiddle has steel strings. Also, classical players may use a bridge with more of a rounded curve. This allows them to finger each note more easily and clearly. Most Violin players hold the instrument underneath the chin, using a chin-rest; but many early fiddle players and some traditional and folk fiddlers set the instrument lower on the chest or on the arm.

Who Invented The Fiddle:

No one knows who invented the stringed instrument known as a violin (fiddle). First, almost every early culture had stringed instruments. Hollowed-out gourds were used by Central Asian cultures at least as early as the 7th century. Also, Egyptians, Sumerians, Greeks and Indians played stringed instruments that were bowed, strummed and plucked.
In addition, in Europe, the violin can be traced back to the 9th century. The Medieval rebec had lateral pegs, a nipped-in waist and f-shaped sound holes. By the mid-1500s, Gaudenzio Ferrari (1511-1580) began experimenting with instruments that would lead to the violin. Finally, studying about the history of the instrument gives you great appreciation!


What is the oldest known Fiddle:

The oldest known instruments were created by Gasparo da Solo (1542-1609) of Brescia, Italy. Gasparo’s father knew Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). Also, we know that da Vinci built some stringed instruments to study how air transmits sound. However, we do not know if he actually built a violin. In addition, it is possible that da Vinci’s work influenced da Solo. Finally, the oldest surviving violin known to have been made in the American colonies is in the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. It was made in 1759. Wow!
