HOW SOUND WORKS ON A STRINGED INSTRUMENT
Default 1
STRINGS AND THEIR VIBRATIONS
VIOLIN, VIOLA, CELLO, and BASS STRINGS operate on the same principles. Your instruments have strings that are stretched to the correct tension, which create the proper frequency vibrations.
Violins have the shortest and thinnest strings. Viola strings are longer and slightly thicker. Cello strings are thicker and longer than violin and viola strings, but the Bass takes its place as the instrument with the thickest and longest strings.
LOW FREQUENCY SOUNDS = LONGER, THICKER STRINGS
HIGH FREQUENCY SOUNDS = SHORTER, THINNER STRINGS
