comment What technical difficulties will I encounter transitioning from violin to 5-string viola?
I disagree with your comments about the E string. Perhaps you got the wrong viola.

comment Why do certain rooms/vessels respond to specific frequencies?
@JCPedroza, thanks for your great answer. Any reference on my third phrase: "Is there a way to reproduce... I'm wondering if we can..."?

comment Violin Pickup that will sound like natural violin?
@endolith, Yes, my question was about the signal after having it passed via an active DI box / preamp.

Yeah, that's what I was looking for. Please see the update in my question.

comment Why do certain rooms/vessels respond to specific frequencies?
No. In wind instruments, the size change of the vessel affects the frequency thus the pitch. I'm talking about an instrument that should sympathetically vibrate according to the current frequency. Try going to a small bathroom and hum a chromatic range from the lowest tone you can. If that tone is in your vocal diapason, you'll suddenly find one pitch (sometimes has to be refined microtonally) that makes the whole room fully resonate.

comment In Pythagorean tuning, what's the frequency of the tonic of each key?
Yes sure, but the question is what's the tonic of Bb, A# etc. Please check out my updated question.

I think we have to invent an expandable acoustic box that customizes its size/shape according to the played frequency. It will give a very warm sound I'm sure. Question is if the size must be a room or we can trick it with different means like tubes etc. LOL.

comment Why do people place amps on top of things?
@Dom, can you please define the term "bleeding sound"?

So is there anything in that tuner that matches the sympathetic fifths system tuning? Maybe in this version there is?

Sounds good to me. Do you know if this tuning in the list above? I have children students I want to give them a convenient and reliable way to tune with a tuner.

comment What frequencies should the violin and viola be tuned to?
I'm afraid my question wasn't understood. Lemme explain, say I give my violin to a tone-deaf person, provided with a tuner. What intonation should he use to tune the GDAE of the violin open strings so that A=440Hz, and the other strings are tuned to it by sympathetic fifths (BTW I tried tuning with Just Schugk and the fifths were paired GD and AE sympathetically, but DA was ewwwww!)? I re-edited my question, to clarify what I'm trying to do.

Any per your answer, do you think if I work on the heavy gauge for a period can I get used to its feel and play on it effortlessly? Nice avatar by the way.

comment What frequencies should the violin and viola be tuned to?
@Sergio, OK, so is there any tuner that will give me the right result so the violin is A=440 in the rest are sympathetic 5ths to adjacent string?

Thanks. Of the two justs above, which one will be perfectly 'just' tuning from A?

comment How to make the bass in beatboxing
@leftaroundabout Exactly what I've been thinking. So are you a beatboxer? What's the true method a voiced bilabial stop or voiceless one?
