Abstract

The general problem was to study the effect of variations of the violin bridge upon intensity and timbre. In this paper a report will be given of the results with regard to the addition of different mutes to the bridge. In general the results indicate that (1) muting reduces energy in the upper partials, but that the different mutes are not uniformly selective throughout all the partials, and (2) all mutes do not necessarily reduce the total intensity of all strings proportionately.
