A cello (Violoncello) is a string musical instrument. It utilizes four strings at varying pitches, tuned into perfect fifths. The cello is known as the voice of the orchestra, and typically provides a lower octave or harmony to the violins. The violas play in the same octave, frequently mirroring melodies or sub-melodies from the cellos and violins.
