The acoustic violin has been a musical mainstay since its inception in the 16th century.

Today, it's one of the world's most popular and versatile instruments. Heard on tracks by famous performers like the Smashing Pumpkins, The Beatles, Coldplay and Britney Spears, the acoustic violin has definitely made a place for itself in modern music.
