SOUND REGULATION

   
 

Influencing the sound of musical instruments with ‚,acupuncture'' – describing a new system for tuning bowed and plucked stringed instruments.

Since the beginning of my career, I have been intrigued by all questions relating to tonal sound. Within the traditional craft of violin making as I had studied, however, there was no concept for specifically shaping the sound of an instrument. Thus, the results of my work remained dissatisfying. After intensive consideration of various tonal problems, I came to the conclusion that only a concept which harmonizes the principles of music acoustics, together with the musician and instrument, could produce a satisfactory sound quality.
