High-Quality Orchestral String Instruments
Finest Brands of Violins, Violas, Cellos, and Basses
String instruments that can be included in a string orchestra are many, but generally include high-pitched string instruments like the violin and viola in combination with bass string instruments like the cello and upright bass (also known as the string bass or contrabass). Orchestral string instruments are also referred to as “bowed instruments,” because they are generally played with a bow. Orchestral string instruments are among the oldest chromatic instruments. Violins also have the designation of potentially being the most expensive instruments ever sold.
