In 1542, Silvestro Ganassi developed a bass viola da gamba in Venice, which is often regarded as the “progenitor” of the double-bass. The double bass is used widely in many musical genres, it can be played with a bow or pizzicato.

The violin, viola, and cello were first made in the early 16th century, in Italy. Violins are likely to have been developed from a number of other string instruments of the 15th and 16th centuries, including the vielle, rebec, and lira da braccio.
