Abstract

Cymbal sounds are generally inharmonic. Using the property that their most energetic vibration modes are the same as those of thin circular plates, we develop a mathematical method to determine new configurations of compound cymbals made up of a centered disk and a ring around it that would vibrate with maximum harmonicity. We exemplify the method with plates made of aluminum and copper.
