Hi I am completely new to Oscilloscopes so I need your help please, I have just bought the ADC-100 from RS as I believed this was what I needed to measure the frequencies of electric guitar strings. Can you advise the correct procedure that I need to follow in order to do this and if I bought the correct product.
As I say I am completely new to Oscilloscopes and how they work, I understand that I need to use the spectrum analyser, do I read the frequency with a microphone and what settings should I chose to achieve a reading of what frequencies the string that is plucked is playing.
What I am trying to see is the frequency the string vibrates at and what other frequencies exist or appear whilst the string vibrates.
I am working on a new pickup design for electric guitars and I believe that our prototype is giving a clearer tone and for longer than existing pickups, I am trying to see if I can produce a visual image on a spectrum analyser so that I can compare with other pickups.
I really appreciate your help, thanks.
PS I omitted to say the frequencies that the strings vibrate at
E 82Hz, A 110Hz, D 147Hz, G 196Hz, B 247Hz, E 330Hz
