# 202203301806 Ringing Sound Intonation vs tone production: intonation is the specific pitch, or even the shade/color of pitch; tone production comes from the bow. The ringing sound, intonation, and resonance are tied together. Intonation influences the resonance of the instrument by affecting its vibrations and therefore has a significant impact on tone. The focus here is not on different types of intonation (mainly just or equal temperament or expressive intonation) but rather on how your specific intonation affects the string you are playing on and how it interacts with other strings. When your intonation fits with the strings in a certain way, it produces what Neikrug called a "ringing sound."
