I am happy to announce that the Trevor Gore Guitar Testing and Analysis online course is now available.
Trevor Gore wrote the books - Contemporary Acoustic Design and Build
In these books he talks about how he runs tests during and after the build process to determine the results of his work. Recently Trevor and I worked together to create a video course that talks the viewers through how to set up and run the tests he explains in his Guitar Design and Build books. Many folks have trouble setting up the hardware, software and jigs needed to run the tests. In my most recently online video course Trevor shows how to do just that. You will avoid many pitfalls and shorten your learning curve so that you can collect data and analyze the results of your instrument building sooner.
How to set up microphones for testing
How to install and calibrate Visual Analyzer software on your computer.
Learn how Trevor made his custom signal generator (PDF file available in the downloads section)
Tap testing for frequency response curves
Using Chaldni patterns to verify frequencies
Measuring material properties
How to determine soundboard thickness
How to measure monopole mobility
How to measure degree of bridge rotation
Below is the intro video from the course in which Trevor outlines the topics covered.
