2018-04-04 20:48:17

Violin tuning is a technical job, generally only people who practice the piano and have snacks can put the tone well, according to the knowledge of the "dream violin" violin network, share how to tune the violin






First, to learn to tune the A string (two strings), then you need A tuner - blown or electronic, after playing the A string of the tuner, on the piano with A long bow to play the A string, then there will be two sound waves at the same time: one is the A of the tuner, the other is the violin A. It is not difficult to see from the figure that the incorrect A string will not be in harmony with the tone of the tuner. One might ask, how do you determine if two sounds are harmonious? Here is A method: when the A of the tuner and the A of the violin are played together, the two notes should be in the same degree, but now there is a relationship of nearly two degrees, so that in the mixed two sounds can clearly hear "hum......". Disordered sound waves outside the harmonic range (like the sound of A mosquito), which indicates that the A string on the violin is not accurate and needs to be turned up or down.


When the A string is in tune, there will be no "hum......" when the note of the piano and the A of the tuner are played at the same time. The sound is as follows:


With the standard tone of the A string, we can continue to tune the E string (1) or the D string (3) on this basis, but I recommend tuning the D string first. When the A string and the inaccurate D string are played together, the two notes should be in A pure fifth relationship, and the pure fifth is a double tone as harmonious as the same degree and the octave, but in the A and D two sounds can clearly hear "hum hum......" For disordered sound waves outside the harmonic range (like the sound of a mosquito), this indicates that the D string is inaccurate and needs to be turned up or down. As the picture shows:


When the D string is tuned, there is no "buzz" when the empty D is played at the same time as the A string. The sound of... Figure: According to the law and method of analogy, all the remaining strings can be adjusted. Of course, these are just theoretical foundations. You can use these theories as the basis, combined with their own ideas to tune other violin skills, please go to the dream violin violin network.

Matters needing attention

When tuning, pay attention to the intensity


Be patient, not impatient


Try the bass and treble over and over again
