Title
(EN) IMPROVEMENTS IN TUNING SYSTEMS FOR STRINGED INSTRUMENTS
(FR) AMELIORATIONS APPORTEES AUX SYSTEMES D'ACCORD D'INSTRUMENTS A CORDES
Abstract
(EN)
An improved tuning system for use in connection with stringed instruments (30) is provided. The improved tuning system includes improved strings and methods of manufacturing such strings. It may also include a tuning mechanism for obtaining at least harmonic tuning of the strings by causing pivotable movement of bridge critical contact surfaces (94) so that a desired distance between the bridge critical contact surfaces (94) and the nut (38) of the stringed instrument is obtained. In a preferred embodiment, the instrument includes a tuning mechanism for obtaining substantially simultaneous harmonic and pitch tuning.
(FR)
Système d'accord amélioré pour les instruments à cordes (30). Le système d'accord implique l'utilisation de cordes améliorées et la mise en ÷uvre de procédés de fabrication de ces cordes améliorés. Il peut aussi impliquer l'utilisation d'un mécanisme d'accord permettant d'obtenir au moins un accord harmonique des cordes par un mouvement pivotant des surfaces de contact critiques du chevalet (94) de façon qu'on puisse obtenir la distance voulue entre les surfaces de contact critiques du chevalet (94) et le sillet (38) de l'instrument à cordes. Selon un mode de réalisation préféré, l'instrument comporte un mécanisme d'accord permettant d'obtenir un accord harmonique et un accord de hauteur sensiblement simultanés.
