Inside a complex system, all parts influence another. Acoustics and crafts are joining inside a plucked instrument by:
- the right use of best materials
- conscentious balancing of weight and stiffness
- intentional evoking and adjusting of resonances
Certain measurments help to document the quality and attitudes of parts and materials:
- The plates´ sound figures (Chladni modes) can be depicted by powdering and exciting it above a speaker with generated sinus tones.
- With exact analysis of a tab tone (Fast Fourier Transformation), main resonances can be shown in a spectra.
