More info about Fiddles VS Violins:
The violin and “fiddle” are the same basic instrument. However, it is considered a violin if you play classical European music (Mozart, Bach, Beethoven) or are part of a classical symphony orchestra. Meanwhile, it’s a fiddle if you play traditional folk or country music. Also, Violins normally have gut or synthetic gut strings, while fiddle has steel strings. In addition, classical players may use a bridge with more of a rounded curve. This allows them to finger each note more easily and clearly. Finally, 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.

Where did the names Violin and Fiddle come from?
The word “violin” comes from the Romance languages (Middle Latin, vitula, meaning “stringed instrument).” The word “fiddle” supposedly comes from the Germanic languages, but it may also have come from the same Middle Latin word. “Violin” was adopted by the Italians, “fiddle” by the English.
Where did the idea for the bow come from?
Hunters who use bow and arrows know the sound made when the arrow is released from a tightly held bow. Early Greek philosophers discussed the sound made by a tightly-held string. Some Native American tribes on the North American continent have a tradition of plucking the strings of the bow and changing tension to change notes. The idea of a bow to create sound on an instrument probably came from Asia by way of the Arabs, or from Nordic tribes. It may have appeared in many places at the same time. It was used in the 10th century on mini-stringed lutes (shaped similar to a half-pear or barrel).
