This paper reports an ew approach to modifying the sound produced by aw ind instrument. The approach is based on modal active control, which enables adjustment of the damping and the frequencies of the different resonances of as ystem. As elf-sustained oscillating wind instrument can be modeled as an excitation source coupled to aresonator via anon-linear(More)
For large-scale woodwind instrument makers, producing instruments with exactly the same playing characteristics is a constant aim. This paper explores manufacturing consistency by comparing five Howarth S10 student model oboes. Psychophysical testing involving nine musicians is carried out to investigate perceived differences in the playing properties of(More)
Active control is widely used in industry. However, there have been relatively few applications to musical instruments, particularly wind instruments. The aim of this study is to attempt to control the sound quality and playability of wind instruments, using active control. Active control makes it possible to modify the input impedance (amplitude and(More)

A mute is a device that is placed in the bell of a brass instrument to alter its sound. However, when a straight mute is used with a brass instrument, the frequencies of its first impedance peaks are slightly modified, and a mistuned, extra impedance peak appears. This peak affects the instrument's playability, making some lower notes difficult or(More)
