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.
