hey everyone. I was just wondering what people's thoughts were on what an electric guitar (plugged into an amp) would sound like at 0 gravity.? Do you think it would effect the rate at which the strings vibrated? And even so would that change the sound produced?

Just for the hell of it and to break the chain I'll say Yes.

No. And screw anyone who wants to break chains. D***a**es need to be taken care of.

Actually, it depends where your 0 gravity is. If the guitar is just floating around in space... well the strings would snap and it would warp and stuff. But anyways! In a vacuum... ok you wouldn't be able to hear it. So yes, it would change the sound by making no sound.

No, because gravity does not affect sonic/light waves.

Uh.. Yeah, gravity does affect light waves. Ever seen what the sun looks like during an eclipse? Its also why light can't escape black holes.

Light waves are quite a bit different from sound waves that the human ear can capture. And gravity does effect those waves (Black holes, for example), but in this case it far from matters.

Also, gravity affects air pressure. Which would then affect the sound waves.

at zero gravity, if you mean outside the atmosphere, then no you cant have sound because there is no media for the sound wave to displace to travel through. but gravity doesn't cause this, well not directly

In space, no one can hear you scream.

On topic, I think its fair to assume he means on earth because he specifies an electric guitar. What is he going to plug into in the middle of outer space? And if our gravity was different, the air pressure wouldn't be the same, therefore the soundwaves would be affected. But only indirectly by gravity.

INFITE SUSTAIN

Don't ever take a Les Paul into space, the sustain alone would kill you. Listening posts beyond Saturn could hear it.

You can have zero gravity inside a spaceship.

Yeah, but musicians aren't meant for space. Just ask Lance Bass.

i guess i found out why people hate it, because they dont know how to use it and because they've never seen the 6 channels. now whenever i see someone insult spiders, im thinking to myself "stupid n00b..." it's really a great amp.

It would be nice if Richard Branson invented a small space where musicians can jam with each other...

It wouldn't affect the sound. Sound spreads out and diffracts very, very easily. Zero Gravity won't affect air pressure. Neither will it affect the wave itself. And free vibration is still allowed. There wouldn't be any change from an environment with gravity to an environment without.

I dont think it changes the sound much... Astronauts listen to music unboard the space shuttles...

Yes...0 gravity=no forces to stop string from vibrating=infinite sustain???


There are a million factors that could (and will) stop the strings from vibrating. You're still in a pressurised cabin of some sort, aren't you?

I actually played my guitar in 0 G a couple of months ago, and I didn't notice anything except that I had to adjust my guitar slightly.
