Wonderful answer, with great links. I have always wondered what the difference between a fiddle and a violin were, and how the sounds are produced differently.
I did some research. My above statement was half wrong. The violin bridge is often lowered a fraction to satisfy certain fiddlers. In France the types of strings are changed. Some fiddles have five strings. Most violins have four. Genre plays a roll.
Are fiddles and violins two different instruments, or just different ways to tune the same one?
@Availiasvision - You do not change the way you tune a violin just because you call it a fiddle. A violin is still a violin, and its tuning depends on the genre and region in which you are playing. Americans often use 440hz As regardless of style.
