It's "the violin." The definite article "the" is often used before musical instruments as far as I know, if not always.

In English, it will depend rather on context. If someone is talking about their ability to play the instrument, they will either say, "I play the violin," or, less formally but still acceptably, "I play violin." If someone is talking about whether they own such an instrument, they will say, "I have a violin."

"the violin" and just "violin" should be accepted.
