Introduction: Violin Acoustics

Laboratory for Violin Acoustics in the Masterstudio for Violinmaking Martin Schleske.

The MARTIN SCHLESKE MASTER STUDIO FOR VIOLINMAKING has a well-equipped acoustics laboratory which is built around the latest scientific research techniques. The laboratory's analysis work focuses on the vibration behavior, construction and sound radiation of top-quality bowed stringed instruments.

Such analysis is used as the basis for producing acoustic evaluations. Acoustic evaluations are useful for insurance companies and instrument owners for obvious reasons. But they are also of interest to violinmakers who need data from high-quality reference instruments. On the following pages, you can read about our analysis techniques and the results of our acoustic analyses of bowed stringed instruments.
