Used as an instrument
The violin is a string instrument, usually with four strings tuned in perfect fifths. It is the smallest, highest-pitched member of the violin family of string instruments, which includes the viola and cello.
During their performance of Something Wicked This Way Comes at the 1993 Start-of-Term Feast, a member of the Hogwarts orchestra played the violin. Violins were also played in the 1994 Yule Ball of the Triwizard Tournament.
Behind the scenes
- In the video game adaptation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, a charmed violin attacked Harry Potter and Ronald Weasley in Fifth-floor halls when they tried to rescue Neville Longbottom from the Ghoul.
- In LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4, there is a violin in the Chamber of Secrets, in the Lower Chambers Portrait Corridor and in front of the Quidditch pitch in the past of 1993–1994 school year.
- One of the possible questions that can be asked during the sorting quiz on Pottermore is about musical instrument preferences. One of the possible answers is the violin.
