String instruments are instruments which produce sound when a vibration is caused by playing or plucking on the strings. String instruments create the characteristic sound of classical music and the symphony orchestra. They also constitute the largest group in numerical terms, with the violin, viola, cello and double bass. The development of the violin and other string instruments dates back to ancient times. The first ever string instrument was a flexible bow. By adjusting the tautness of the string, the holder was able to create differently pitched sounds. The current shape of the violin emerged in the 15th century and was the result of a long process of evolution. By this time, its form and proportion were so perfect that almost no changes have been made to the violin since. 'If God, as they say, created man in his own image, then we can trust that he created the violin in his own image, more accurately in the image of the woman, as the violin is a beautiful goddess.” (Yehudi Menuhin)
