Wood Reference Tap Tone Tool......
.Everything I am teaching about tap tone technology revolves around the use of this wood tap tone reference tool. You WILL need to have this to do accurate work!
..If you want, you cap glue two felt strips across the back (about 3/8" wide) in 22.4% in from each end.
..This will give the best tap response and clearest tap tones.
..With the tool made to these dimensions, the 'S' will be at a depth of about 0.335"; the 'T' at a depth of about 0.413"; and the 'B' at a depth of about 0.516".
..Now, in order to calibrate your new wood reference tap tone tool, I am going to let you listen to this recording in which I tap my tone reference tool on each of the reference frequencies as well as the special points that are at: 161 HZ, 176 HZ, and 198 HZ. {176 HZ abd 198 HZ are close to a tuned piano F and G below middle C.} These I am recording with my very accurate Zoom recorder. Click here on on box below to hear these tap tones. Listen to the digital tap recording and then find the same spot on your reference tool and mark it as in the above photo.
..Please note: This file is in wave format (required by my old program) and consequently must be 60 Megabyte size, so it is going to take a while to load (depending on your internet speed). Please wait for it to load and then save it to your computer (if possible, for future use). You will probably only have to use it once to calibrate your new wood tap tone reference tool.
