Cello : What is it?

Cellos

The cellos, formally known as the violoncello, is a string instrument that belongs to the violin family. It is the smaller version of the violene, a large instrument similar to the obsolete double bass. It is used in solo performances, chamber music, string quartets, and orchestras.

The cello is one of the largest members of the string family of instruments. It has four strings that produce tones one octave lower than the viola. Its voice is similar to the bass voice of a person on the low end.
