What's the difference between these three instruments?

What's the difference between a cello, violin, and a fiddle?
All of them look the same, if not, similar. Is the sound different? The size?

Ha Ha Angela,

Their spellings are different! But they are are not look the same!
Literally, Fiddle is the board name of any bow string instruments. This term is applicable to violin, viola, cello or even double bass. Ref.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiddle

In general today terminology, fiddle is a kind of violin playing style. So that, the fiddle will use steel strings to create the tonal character, and the bridge made flatter to help the double stopping decoration easier to play. In that sense, fiddle is almost look the same or similar to violin.

Since fiddle is specified to a special tone character, the fiddle maker does not aim on the musical instrument's full spectrum resonance, the fiddle is not that DEEP and STRONG in its bass and is not that sharp and sweet compare with violin. In contrast, the metallic tone, the reverberation and echoing color simply can be found with a fiddle.

The tunings and scores of violin and fiddle, both of them are using the same notation method and range.

Finally, let's turn the spot light to the first musical instrument "Cello"
It is the biggest musical instrument on the list. It's body, from the scroll head to the belly end is about 4 feet long, the end pin can be adjust off from the floor.
It is too big for the players put it on their shoulders, so that, there is no chin rest, the shape of the cello bridge is very different from a violin bridge. It's sound is very deep and low.

For violin, its four strings are tuned to G (two lower ledger space of treble clef staff) D (the space below the treble clef staff), A (the second lower space of the treble clef staff), and E (the highest space of the treble clef staff) but for the cello, its music is written on the bass clef staff. Its lowest string is tuned to two lower ledger line of the bass clef, which is the lower C and the following strings are tuned to G, D and A.
