But this fact that an electro-magnet would set a tuning-fork humming was new to Bell and very attractive.
He brought Bell to his house and showed him what Helmholtz had done--how he had kept tuning-forks in vibration by the power of electro-magnets, and blended the tones of several tuning-forks together to produce the complex quality of the human voice.
Pickering is seated at the table, putting down some cards and a tuning-fork which he has been using.
In this corner stands a flat writing-table, on which are a phonograph, a laryngoscope, a row of tiny organ pipes with a bellows, a set of lamp chimneys for singing flames with burners attached to a gas plug in the wall by an indiarubber tube, several tuning-forks of different sizes, a life-size image of half a human head, showing in section the vocal organs, and a box containing a supply of wax cylinders for the phonograph.
The sky was of the deepest blue, with a few white, fleecy clouds drifting lazily across it, and the air was filled with the low drone of insects or with a sudden sharper note as bee or bluefly shot past with its quivering, long-drawn hum, like an insect tuning-fork
It was like that of a tuning-fork
or the tongue of a jew's-harp.
And then of a sudden I saw Raffles on my right striking with his torch; a face flew out of the darkness to meet the thick glass bulb with the glowing wire enclosed; it was the face of the boy Olphert, with his enviable moustache, but it vanished with the crash of glass, and the naked wire thickened to the eye like a tuning-fork
quartz crystals in a wide range of small through-hole (tubular, VT), plastic-molded (SSP) and tiny ceramic (SCX) SMD packages down a size of 1.
According to proponents of tuning-fork
sound therapy, an organ or chakra that is not operating at maximum capacity will entrain to the frequency of a vibrating tuning fork and come back into alignment.
Either we have lost the art of writing great pop songs, or those who actually write, and indeed vote for these songs at source, are as tone deaf as a duff tuning-fork
Consequently, the computed tuning-fork
testing, bone conduction was greater than air conduction bilaterally.
