Paper Abstract

Almost forty years ago the electric bass was invented and after some years it established itself as the most important source of low frequency sounds in modern music. This work will aim at studying the vibrational behavior of this instrument using, as much as possible, exciting sources related to its normal use, namely acoustical waves and short pulses applied on the strings. A characterization of the forces applied while playing will also be briefly performed along with a description of the basic features of different musical signals.
