Excerpt: ...of the same partials, the answer is' yes' as far as the series of partials belonging to middle C is concerned, 'no' in so far as each instrument makes its own selection and varies the relative intensity of those chosen. And it is precisely this variation in the number and intensity of the partials present in a given sound that accounts for differences of timbre or quality. We may state this fact as follows: Two clangs of the same pitch must select their partials from the same series, but may differ in timbre: (1) through selecting different partials--some of the series being absent in either or both sounds- (2) through the different intensities of the various partials, should the selection happen to be identical- (3) through variation both in selection and relative intensity. The corollary to the above statement must obviously be that pure tones, having no partials, can only differ in pitch and intensity- and experiment proves this to be the case. A resonator, constructed to vibrate only when it is excited by the air-vibrations corresponding to its pitch, produces a simple tone, and it is impossible to distinguish between resonators in the matter of individual quality. Tuning-forks, again, produce tones which are very nearly pure, and they are almost exactly alike. The cooing of a dove, or the soft 'oo' sound of a well-trained choir-boy, are about as near pure tones as we can get in ordinary life. A vibrating string generates all the partial tones- but the ear is only capable of recognizing--as in all clangs--a limited number of the lower ones. And since the vibrations of a string (especially of a large string vibrating with considerable amplitude) are easily visible to the naked eye, an examination of them forms a good introduction to...
