The Simulation of Bell Tones with the Help of Pipe-Bells and Keyboard Sounds
In the present work the natural frequencies of the flexural vibrations of a pipe-bell were measured and calculated and an investigation made of the vibrations which are of definite significance to obtain the required sound impression. It was found further under which conditions the bell sound could be simulated by the keyboard sound. The tones of the bell-chord struck on the piano corresponded closely with the stepped-up amplitude tones of the pipe-bell spectrum. Finally it was shown in which way the sound spectrum of church bells corresponds with that of pipe-bells and piano-bell chords.
