  2. Wind instrumentsInstruments whose sound source is either an edge tone or a reed mechanism to resonate a column of air.

          

  3. Percussion InstrumentsInstruments having as a sound source either a vibrating membrane or vibrating solid bodies.

          

  4. FretsMetal inlays in the fingerboard of some stringed instruments. These are placed perpendicularly to the strings at premeasured places along the length of the fingerboard to fix the length of the string when the finger presses behind them.

          

  5. DampingSuppression of vibration by applying physical restraint. Decrease in amplitude because of interfering forces.

          

  6. Stringed instrumentsInstruments whose sound source is either an edge tone or a reed mechanism to resonate a column of air.

          

  7. Torsional VibrationTones produced on stringed instruments by lightly touching a point along a string's length as it is bowed where a node exists.

          

  8. GlottisThe opening between the vocal folds.

          

  9. TracheaAny object or pair of objects which, when vibrated at the closed end of a pipe, sets the air in the pipe into vibration.

          

  10. BoreThe inside shape and dimensions of a wind instrument.

          

  11. ReedsMetal inlays in the fingerboard of some stringed instruments. These are placed perpendicularly to the strings at premeasured places along the length of the fingerboard to fix the length of the string when the finger presses behind them.

          

  12. Edge tonesMetal inlays in the fingerboard of some stringed instruments. These are placed perpendicularly to the strings at premeasured places along the length of the fingerboard to fix the length of the string when the finger presses behind them.
