Q: What's the difference between a Fiddle and a Violin?
Many people ask what the difference is between a violin and a fiddle. The answer is simple. Nothing. It's exactly the same instrument, the only difference is the type of music you play and bowing technique.
"The difference was likely compounded by the different sounds expected of violin music and fiddle music. Historically, the majority of fiddle music was dance music, while violin music had either grown out of dance music or was something else entirely.
Violin music came to value a smoothness that fiddling, with its dance-driven clear beat, did not always follow. In situations that required greater volume, a fiddler (as long as they kept the beat) could push their instrument harder than could a violinist."~wiki
I bought my fiddle at The Violin Shop in Salt Lake City. If you are a beginner, I would suggest renting a violin for a little while first. Good violins can cost thousands of dollars, so when your just starting out renting is your best option. ~ Susie
