Cymbals came from the Latin word “cymbalum” that is extrapolated from the Greek kumbalon. This musical originated in Asia, particularly in China as they have their very own version of it classified as the “China cymbal. People in China and Turkey used cymbals for their religious acts and during rituals. It is a hollow shaped, metal plate instrument that can be played by smashing it to each other. It also produces blaring sound not only when smash to one another but also when struck by a drumstick. By its loud ringing sound it’s no surprise that it can caught the people’s attention during performances, it is mostly used by rock and marching bands as one of their instruments during fiestas or festivals. Cymbals have 6 classes or types namely as, Hi-hats, Ride cymbals, Crash cymbals, Sizzle cymbals, Splash cymbals, 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 ringing sound. Crash cymbals are the cymbals that produce a clear and low sound. Sizzle cymbals are cymbals that can be accompanied by a chain which can be bought separately for the user to assemble. Splash cymbals are the most diminutive type of cymbals. And lastly, the China cymbal that produces a loud banging sound that can be compared to China gong.
Not only it produces different waves of sounds it also produces a large amount of air that can be used as a substitute for human’s carbon dioxide. In this way, Cymbals can be used a great plant developer and help businessmen to harvest more in their marketing business. There have been researches conducted to prove its effectiveness and one of them proved its effectiveness. In the year 1962, a Doctor named Dr. T Singh, the head of the Botany Department that lies in Annamalai University located Annamalai Nagar, Chidambaram, Tamil Nadu India conducted a study on how musical sounds contribute on the increased size of plants growth. As for his first experiment he used balsam plants, kinds of plants that release an oily substance but with pleasing odor and musical sounds to discover the if it will increase. And the nature seems to repay his efforts as his experiment with the balsam plants is a successful one as he discovered that the balsam plants increased in height by 20% and also increased in its biomass by 72%. After the experiment in the balsam plants by the use of musical sounds, he later then used “raga music” a traditional set of musical notes in Indian music, and it is played by a Reeva an Indian instrument and instruments that can be played with the used of wind such as flute and found the same results to the first experiment. He then played “raga music” using a loudspeaker and a gramophone. And he soon found out that the size of the crops which is planted with a 25% in size increased to 60%.
Sugar apple (Annona squamosa) also known as sweetsop, is a native fruit in the West Indies and South America. It is usually available during fall and also during summertime. The Sugar apple trees heights about 10-20 feet and its fruit is about 2 ½ to 4 inches long and containing 40 pieces of seed per sugar apple. Its fruit ripens about 3-4 months. It is served in restaurants as a dessert or often utilizes as ice cream and shakes because of its custard-like taste, and others are eating sugar apple raw. Not only it is used in making desserts or any sweets but it can also be used as one of the ingredients for some medicines that can cure many diseases. Containing Iron (3%), Vitamin C ( 60%), Calcium(2%), Vitamin B-6(10%),Magnesium(5%). These make Sugar apple a good ingredient for some diseases such as diarrhea, asthma, arthritis, and many more. This experiment is expected to be successful as Dr. Singh had done this before in his previous experiment. In this research the researchers will use musical sounds or instruments specifically Cymbals as a growth improver of the Sugar apple (Annona squamosa). The researchers are aiming for the succession of this experiment because this will surely give farmers good field crops.
