Example for an audible fundamental and itís overtones for wind chime notes

The blue shaded area of the chart represents a frequency range from 300 Hz to 3,000 Hz. This demonstrates a range for audible fundamental frequencies and their overtones beginning at about C2 and moving upward to about C4. Note that the fundamental is mostly inaudible below about C4. The more overtones present the more melodious the strike note. The range of 300 Hz to 3000 Hz was selected as an example for a possible listening range and does not represent the complete audible range.
