Instruments Tops How Wood Choice Affect Sounds
Division:Health Sciences
City:Bedford, NS
School:Bedford South School
Abstract:This project investigated if hardwood-topped stringed instruments produce a different sound than softwood-topped. Two standardized, simple instruments were made; with cedar and maple tops. They were plucked at standard stroke while music-recording software assessed wavefoms. Cedar produced consistent waveforms through the entire spectrum, confirming it as the popular stringed instrument top wood choice.
