    What is the purpose of a fifth string on violin

    I take it you’re asking this in the viola section because you recognize that fifth string is actually the low viola C string. The purpose of the fifth string is to have that extra lower register. In my case, I’m a violist who teaches both violin and viola, so I own an instrument that allows me to play and teach the entire range of both instruments.
