Abstract

The perceived qualities of three cellos were rank ordered using subjective preference judgements. Median overall A-weighted sound levels were obtained at semi-tone intervals for a 3-octave range on each cello. Decreased deviations from the overall medium sound level and decreased aggregate note-to-note changes in sound level were found to be ranked in the same order as perceived quality
