Tuning Forks

I didn't realize that there are different types of tuning forks. I have only seen the longer thin ones like on the left. When I was looking for images I saw that there are also the kind with the bulkier bodies, like the one on the right. I think that these thicker ones are probably more accurate to the era; the other looks like a modern design and is also the kind that I've seen used.

  1. In my little experience with tuning forks, most of which has been for research with sound waves, I've seen the thicker forks. It's definitely a more classic style. Although musical tuning forks tend to be more stylistic, like the handle of the left fork. I found this fork on etsy
