The possibility of tuning violins in different frequency ranges is discussed in relation to experiments, which show that the spectra of a violin is determined by resonances in its parts. The qualities of violins of the old masters are exemplified with the help of the spectra and observed forms of vibration. The conclusions agree with the tuning methods of the old masters.

The object of this work is to find how to give a determined tone quality to a violin by varying the mass and mass + spring relationships; also to find in what way the wooden plates should vibrate to give the optimal wave-form in different frequency ranges and in which range violins of normal size and shape should be tuned.
