String instrument

Since string instruments are tied on both sides of the string, the string’s end becomes the vibration’s knot. When the string is bounced or rubbed with a bow, the string vibrates and makes a sound. String instruments produce lower sounds when having a longer and heavier string.

The reason small instruments are cover the higher range is that the shorter the string, the higher the sound.
