My sister just gave me this fiddle today and I googled it and seen there really is no difference between the fiddle and a violin only fiddle is smaller. I was wonder can I play classical music on this fiddle like a violin and have it sound just as good. and what size strings do I buy and can an electric violin tuner work on this fiddle?
Hi and welcome to the forum! 🙂
There is actually NO difference between a fiddle and a violin. The terms are more often used to differentiate the style of music played on the instrument.
I would guess what you have there is a fractional sized violin. They make them all the way from 1/8 size up to full size (4/4) so that young children can start playing on a suitable sized instrument.
A 7/8 violin falls right about 13 1/2 inches (from what I've found online). A 3/4 falls at around 13" or 13 1/4".
Are you measuring the button? If you are, subtract that and you'd have a 3/4 violin 🙂
