An account of the circumstances of its discovery has been given by the sometime curator of that collection, Dr Clemens von Gleich in Weber Further details have been provided by the current curator, Rob van Acht reported by Rowland-Jones Briefly, the Dordrecht Recorder was excavated from the moat surrounding the ruins of the Huis te Merwede House on the Merwede about 3 km east of the town of Dordrecht, Holland.
Founded in the first quarter of the fourteenth century, this castle was the residence of a wealthy Dutch family from An assault in and the devastating effects of the St Elizabeth Flood of and another in put an end to the existence of the castle.
Whether it’s a vintage amp or a recent model such as this Fender Pro Reverb, hum can have several causes. Possible culprits include the preamp tubes, the power tubes, the hum balance resistors, and the power supply caps.
Army signal horn, cornu , Roman period; found in Alphen aan den Rijn, the Netherlands An instrument for creating sound made from the horn of an animal Olifant, possibly southern Italian, 11th century Alphorn player near Zermatt Cornicen horn players from Trajan’s Column As the name indicates, people originally used to blow on the actual horns of animals before starting to emulate them in metal or other materials. This original usage survives in the shofar Hebrew: Apparently of Asian origin, they reached Europe from Byzantium in the tenth or eleventh century, and are first mentioned in French literature in the early 12th century.
In Europe they came to be symbols of royalty. The more familiar form, with an upturned bell, was developed in Switzerland in the eighteenth century. The practice of making these instruments in different sizes, to be played together in part music, originated in They are made in straight, hooked, and S-shaped forms, in lengths between 1. A variant of the straight version is called tulnic.
Nearly fifty of these curved bronze horns have been excavated from burial sites, mostly in Scandinavia, since the first was discovered in Many are in unison pairs, curved in opposite directions. Because their makers left no written histories, their use and manner of playing is unknown. The lur was likely known to the Etruscans, noted as bronze-workers from the 8th century BC, who in turn were credited by the Romans with the invention of their horns and trumpets, including long curved horns in the form of a letter C or G.
Depictions of these instruments are found from the 5th century BC onward on Etruscan funerary monuments. The Etruscan name for them is unknown, but the Romans called them buccina and cornu.

Instruments that used a spinning coil to generate an electric current by means of the earth’s magnetic field, and to measure the angle of “dip” of that field, were developed soon after the discovery of electomagnetic induction, but were used for a variety of purposes and took on a multiplicity of forms.
In general, the early ones were didactic and non-quantitative; later came more elaborate designs that could yield precise numerical data for geomagnetic research. Earlier version in Rittenhouse, Vol. Henry constructed in the strongest electromagnet in the world; the principles he discovered in the process led him on to devise an electric motor. His spectacular magnets launched his scientific career, but in the case of his motor, his reluctance to be involved in non-scientific applications of his discoveries battled in his psyche with his need for credit and recognition, leading to a curious ambivalence.
Chapter 1 introduces you to the various kinds of instruments and explains why they were so popular during their golden age. Chapters 2 through 9 describe and illustrate each type of instrument. Each of these chapters begins with a colorful vignette titled You Are There, by Q. These settings are a composite blend of real and fictional material intended to represent the atmosphere of the era.

Radiocarbon dating in Archaeology As director of the Oxford Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit, he has been involved in many different archaeological projects. These projects include those that are led from Oxford, and those that are collaborative with scholars elsewhere. His primary focus in recent years has been in the archaeology of the eastern Mediterranean Aegean, Egypt and the Levant , and in the Paleolithic period with Tom Higham.
Much of his current research is directed to improving radiocarbon as a method for quaternary research. Two current research grants are directed at improving the global datasets for radiocarbon calibration. The use of numerical modeling methods in chronology Over the last 15 years he has worked extensively on the application of Bayesian statistical methods to the study of chronology in both Archaeology and Quaternary environmental research.

Links to other classical guitar sites Ancient Near East It is believed that the history of the guitar began in the ancient Near East. There, the archeologists found instruments and representations of them that served as landmarks or guideposts in the relatively uncharted territory of the guitar’s beginning. Among the artifacts excavated from Babylonia, the most relevant were the clay plaques dated B.
These showed nude figures playing musical instruments, some of which bear a general resemblance to the guitar. Close examination of the instrument on the plaque shows it to have a distinctly differentiated body and neck. Its back is undoubtedly flat; the manner in which it rests against the priest’s chest precludes the possibility of its being bowl-shaped.
By Sound to Earth , the company behind Weber mandolins, is one of the most respected names in the mandolin business. Founded by former employees of Flatiron and Gibson Montana, Sound to Earth has brought its experience and talent to bear on a wide range of mandolin-family instruments, winning renown for its double-edged dedication to clean, tradition-informed design coupled with innovative engineering. Although the company is one of the largest domestic mandolin builders, its products all display the fit, finish, and craftsmanship of handbuilt instruments.
The mahogany body and neck, with twin points on the upper bouts, bring to mind the Gibson EM , although a third body point and a snakehead headstock give the Maverick its own identity. Innovation shows up in the contoured ebony pickguard, which cleverly conceals the tone and volume knobs as well as a 3-position coil switch, affording you the ability to get series, parallel, and single-coil sounds out of the DiMarzio dual-blade humbucker.
Hiding the controls in this way not only keeps the design cleaner, it also gives the player unparalleled access to those controls.

Spanish stele of a girl with a pandura , 2nd century A. The earliest image showing a lute-like instrument came from Mesopotamia prior to BC. Under the Sasanians, a short almond shaped lute from Bactria came to be called the barbat or barbud, which was developed into the later Islamic world’s oud or ud. During the 8th and 9th centuries, many musicians and artists from across the Islamic world flocked to Iberia.
Two varieties of soundholes are present in the image. The squiggly lines on the soundboard, looking like a 3 or W, were a characteristic of Muslim-constructed instruments. Curt Sachs linked this instrument with the mandola, the kopuz and the gambus , and named the bowed version rabab. The pandura , a lute the Romans brought to Spain, was also strung with three strings, and later called trichordon by musicologists.

His Contemporaries and His Instruments , one must have more than a passing curiosity about the composer. Rather, one should have a serious interest in the history of keyboard music of the early 19th century, in addition to an awareness of Chopin ‘s circle of friends and associates. In other words, this is a set for the connoisseur who wishes to delve into the influences and instruments around Chopin , and it is perhaps too much for the casual listener who is only looking for his greatest hits.
Keyboard works of early Romantic composers are included, along with recordings of Chopin ‘s complete nocturnes, so the selections give the listener an excellent impression of the piano music of the time, though not a broad sampling of Chopin ‘s forms and styles, for many of his most popular pieces are not included. The roster of artists is dominated by Bart van Oort , whose four discs of nocturnes by Chopin and John Field give the most coherent presentation of instruments, though the remaining two discs offer worthwhile examples of Chopin ‘s mazurkas and early pieces, along with music by Franz Liszt , Carl Maria von Weber , and Charles-Valentin Alkan , played in tasteful period style by Constantino Mastroprimiano , Cor de Groot , Jan Vermeulen , Stanley Hoogland , and Fred Oldenburg.
