Paper Abstract

Holographic interferometry is a useful technique for studying the vibrational modes of both separate vibrating elements and complete instruments. Spatial resolution is excellent and studies can be made at small amplitudes. Time-average holographic interferograms of handbells Chinese two-tone bells Caribbean steel drums snare drum shells cymbals and guitars are shown. 1 .
