Body Tuners C 256 Hz and G 384 Hz With Pouch - Aluminum Tuning Forks
The Body Tuners are 2 tuning forks, C 256 Hz and G 384 Hz, that create the special interval in music and sound therapies called the Perfect Fifth or Diapente. This economical set is unweighted and comes complete with a red velveteen carry pouch and striking mallet. This set can be used for teaching physics or vibrational healing.
Body Tuning is based on the Pythagorean Scale also known as the Just Scale. Lao Tzu referred to this interval as the sound of universal harmony between the forces of Yin and Yang. In India, the Fifth is believed to create a sound through which Shiva calls Shakti to the Dance of Life.
When two tuning forks of different frequency are sounded simultaneously the result is a complex wave with a repetition frequency that is the fundamental of the harmonic series to which both frequencies belong. The ear perceives this 'musical interval' as a single musical pitch with a sound quality produced by the harmonic spectrum responsible for the waveform. This waveform can be captured and displayed with data collection hardware and software. The fundamental frequency can then be calculated and compared with what would be expected from the frequencies of the tuning forks. Also, graphing software can be used to determine equations for the wave forms and predict their shapes. This experiment could be used in an introductory physics or musical acoustics course as a practical lesson in superposition of waves, basic Fourier series and the relationship between some of the ear's subjective perceptions of sound and the physical properties of the waves that cause them.
We have had these specially made in a premium alloy that has been so successful in our other tuning fork sets, resulting in a heavier fork with a longer tone. There are many different schools of thought on vibrational healing and many different teachers to follow. Everyone has their own interpretation of what frequency does what.
