Harmonic Distortion, Musically Speaking

Frederik Dejongh

Harmonic distortion, how does it work?

TUBE vs TRANSISTOR, it's good to understand their characteristics and use/abuse them!

...And remember: harmonic distortion does not discriminate;  every note of every chord will produce its own series of harmonics, and if the amplifier is dominated by 3rd and 5th harmonics, that’s a lot of extra notes ringing out that weren’t there to begin with!

A note of 220 Hz, the 2nd harmonic (H2) would be 2 x 220 Hz = 440 Hz, the 3rd harmonic (H3) would be 3 x 220 Hz = 660 Hz, etc.
