Record Type: concept
armonicas (musical glasses, friction idiophones, ... Furnishings and Equipment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Musical glasses developed by Benjamin Franklin around 1761, in which glass bowls of graded size fitted concentrically on a horizontal rod are turned by a crank attached to a pedal as the player rubs the rims with slightly moistened or chalk-dusted fingers to produce sound. In a slightly later development, a shallow trough of water is fitted below the rod, which is mounted obliquely so that the bowls are moistened as they rotate.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 西元1761年左右,由班傑明.富蘭克林發明的音樂杯組。玻璃碗依照大小,同一軸心地裝設於水平琴桿上,演奏者以微濕或沾粉的手指摩擦玻璃碗邊緣發聲時,聯接於腳踏板的曲柄同時轉動玻碗。在稍後的發展,將裝水的淺槽固定在琴桿下方,因為琴杆傾斜放置,因此一來,玻璃碗在轉動時,即可自動沾水變濕。 
Dutch ..... Reeks glazen schalen waarop muziek wordt gemaakt door over de randen te wrijven met bevochtigde of met magnesium ingewreven vingers, concentrisch gemonteerd op een horizontale staaf, draaibaar d.m.v. krukas en pedaal, oplopende afmetingen; rond 1761 ontwikkeld; ook de latere versie met ondiep, licht hellend onder de staaf aangebracht gootje met water voor bevochtiging van de schalen.
