Abstract/Summary/Outline:

Idiophones generate sound through the vibration of their beam-like “keys”. The musical sound generated depends on the natural bending vibrations of the free-free beams. The tonal quality of the idiophone bar is achieved by tuning the second and third natural bending frequencies in relation to the fundamental natural frequency. Tuning these harmonic overtones becomes one of the primary tasks for making idiophone bars. It is achieved by removing material from the underside of the beams...
