A powerful tool for correcting tuning errors in existing instruments and for creating new designs, Nederveen's work has long been a standard in the field of acoustics.

In an extended new chapter, Nederveen analyzes and interprets recent developmeents in research on the acoustics of woodwind instruments. This revised edition, which also contains a new list of symbols and a new subject index, is a necessity for scholars, teachers, and practitioners of music, physics, acoustics, and woodwind design.
