Choosing A Violin Is Very Important

The violin is a stringed instrument dating back to the sixteenth century in Italy.

The base of each violin is a box (resonator), with a f-shaped cutout, which is why they are called f openings. Its upper part is made of spruce wood and the lower one is maple wood. The box has a neck that is rounded on the top. There is a gripper between the neck and the head. The head ends with a snail and has four nibs. The box has a keel whose function is to transmit the flicker of the wires to the box, and the roundness of the top allows the sound to be produced on each of the wires. The strings are attached to the cord, and it to the button. The violin consists of two basic parts: a string and a violin. The string consists of wires that are made from the tail of a horse’s hair and from a tree called pernabucco. The length of the string varies, but it is generally 73 cm and the weight is between 55 and 65 g. Violin has four strings.
