The potential of muirapiranga (Brosimun sp.) as a substitute material for violin bows was estimated in terms of vibrational properties, and the influence of extractives on the vibrational properties was examined. The loss tangent of muirapiranga was somewhat higher and the specific dynamic Young’s modulus was rather lower than the respective values for pernambuco, which is regarded as the best material for violin bows. Therefore, muirapiranga is a poorer bow material in terms of vibrational… CONTINUE READING
