Abstract

This is a report of one category of findings arising from a general program of research concerned with tone production on the violin. The development of a mechanical bow has made possible the control of bowing factors so that each factor may be varied independently. In general it has been found that, for a given point of contact, bow speed is the predominant factor in determining the intensity of tone. Variation in the point of contact, relative to the distance from the bridge, results in an increase in intensity as the bridge is approached.
