New banjo and violin enhancers have been invented (patent pending)! And prototypes have been sent to independent "testers" for their opinions, comments and suggestions. Their comments will be used to improve the first products.
The new banjo enhancer is designed to give the banjo's sound tremendous volume and strong impact, both are valued by Bluegrass banjo players. The banjo device also gives a Gibson style banjo an above average amount of sound duration or "sustain".
The new violin enhancer increases the volume and also improves sound quality of our rented violin. We will have to see what our violin testers say about it in their violins.
Both of these new devices are internal to the instrument and use waxed, braided cords to pick up and amplify sound surface waves from physical contact with the instrument's sound chamber, and also from the impacts of air pressure waves of audible sound on the cords. The cords convert the air pressure impacts into sound surface waves. The devices then greatly amplify these sound surface waves (by the physics wave principle of "constructive Interference") and then convert them into amplified air pressure waves of audible sound in the instruments' sound chambers.
Volume is increased because total audible sound energy in the sound chamber is increased. Sound quality is increased because harmonics are also greatly amplified.
