The violin is more than four centuries old, first made in Italy by Andrea Amati (c. 1500-1577) who was the first violin maker. He set the proportions in violin making for future generations. The violin become very popular during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and many noble families and royal courts commissioned its production. There were many great violin makers, including the well-known Stradivari whose violins are considered the best bowed stringed instruments ever made. They cost millions of dollars and only the best violin players in the world have touched them.
