Cymbals camefrom the Latin word “cymbalum” that is extrapolated from the Greek kumbalon.This musical originated in Asia, particularly in China as they have their veryown version of it classified as the “China cymbal”. In the past years, about3-5000 years ago, People in Turkey and China use cymbals as part of theirreligious ceremonies and rituals. It is a hollow shaped, metal plate, a musicalinstrument that can be played by smashing it to each other.
It also producesblaring sound not only when smash to one another but also when struck by a drumstick.With its loud ringing sound that usually caught the audience’s attention, it isusually by rock bands and marching bands. Cymbals have 6 classes or typesnamely as, Hi-hats, Ride cymbals, Crash cymbals, Sizzle cymbals, Splashcymbals, and China cymbals.
Hi-hats were the one usually used in a drum set.Ride cymbals are the largest type of cymbals that produce a much more ringingsound. Crash cymbals are the cymbals that produce a clear and low sound. Sizzlecymbals are cymbals usually accompanied by a chain that can be boughtseparately for the user to assemble. Splash cymbals are the most diminutivetype of cymbals. And lastly, the China cymbal that produces a loud bangingsound that can be compared to China gong.
Not only it produces differentwaves of sounds it also produces a large amount of air that can be used as asubstitute for human’s carbon dioxide. In this way, Cymbals can be used a greatplant developer and help businessmen to harvest more in their marketingbusiness. There have been researches conducted to prove its effectiveness, oneof these is Dr. T.C Singh’s experiment. In the year 1962, a Doctor named Dr.
T.C Singh, the head of the BotanyDepartment that lies in India’s Annamalai University located Annamalai Nagar,Chidambaram, Tamil Nadu India conducted a study on how musical sounds affectplants growth. He then used balsam plants, plants that release an oilysubstance but with a pleasing odor.
The experiment seems to be successful as hediscovered that the balsam plants increased in height by 20% and 72% of itsbiomass. After the experiment in the balsam plants by the use of musicalsounds, He later used “raga music” a traditional series of musical notes inIndian music, and it’s played by a “Reeva” an Indian instrument and alsoharmonium a keyboard instrument played with the use of wind, Violin, and fluteand found the comparable effects to the first experiment. And found the sameresults comparable to the result of the first experiment. He then played ragausing a loudspeaker and a gramophone.
And he soon found out the size of thecrops increased from 25% to 60%. Sugar apple (Annona squamosa)also known as the sweetsop, is a native fruit in the West Indies and SouthAmerica. It is usually available during fall and also during summer.
The treesof Sugar apple heights from 10-20 feet and its fruit is about 2 ½ to 4 incheslong and containing up to 40 pieces of seed per sugar apple. Its fruit ripensabout 3-4 months. It is commonly used in restaurants as ice cream and shakesbecause it tastes like custard others used sugar apple for their desserts andsome are eating it raw.
It is not only used in making desserts or dishes but itcan be used also as medicines for many diseases. Containing Iron (3%), VitaminC ( 60%), Calcium(2%), Vitamin B-6(10%),Magnesium(5%). These make the fruit asolution for some diseases such as diarrhea, asthma, arthritis, and many more.This experiment was expected to be successful because of the same way of theexperiments done by Dr. Singh as it was similar to our experiment because italso uses musical sounds or instruments as growth improver of the Sugar apple.The researchers are aiming for the succession of this experiment because thiswill surely give farmers good field crops.
