This category concerns the Persian kamancheh, also known as "spiked fiddle".

Kamancheh, kamānche or kamāncha (Persian:کمانچه) is a Persian bowed string instrument related to the bowed rebab, the historical ancestor of the kamancheh,[1] and also to the bowed lira of the Byzantine Empire (Byzantine lyra), ancestor of the European violin family. Also related to similar instrument Kemenche; historically, rebab-style Kemençe was known in Persia in 13th century (Meragi, c.1400).[1]

The kamancheh is a viola-size small string instrument played with a variable-tension bow, and the word "kamancheh" means "little bow" in Persian (kæman, bow, and -cheh, diminutive). In English, it is sometimes called the spiked fiddle, because a spike protrudes from the bottom to support the instrument during the playing.

The kamancheh is widely used in the classical music of Iran, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, with slight variations in the structure of the instrument. In Kashmir, kamancha is known as saaz-i-kashmir.
