Frequency of high versus low notes. - 01/02/05 04:03 PM
This may be an academic question, nothing affecting my playing, but I am curious. I do not have a piano so cannot check but do I assume correctly that the low notes have shorter strings than the high notes. And as I have heard that opera singers at the higher notes can shatter glass I assume the higher notes have the higher vibrations. So I am wondering what the difference in number of vibrations per second would be for the low end of the keyboard to the upper end, assuming an 88 key board (I only have five octaves on my electronic keyboard).
