The viola is tuned a fifth lower than the violin to CGDA. The cello is the same but one octave lower while the double bass is tuned in fourths to EADG the same as an electric bass guitar. We stock violins in all our shops, and Leeds also specialises in the bigger instruments in the violin family.Intro
