 Musical Instruments
The different pitches on most stringed instruments are obtained either by having many strings of different lengths, as on a harp, or by changing the vibrating length of strings by stopping them at different points, as on a violin or guitar.
The pitch of a brass instrument depends on the volume of air that is vibrating, as well as the speed at which the player's lips vibrate.
In general this means that the instruments must have a different vibrating body for each note, such as xylophone bars, chimes, bells, or the tuned gongs of a gamelan orchestra.
