The pitch of the fundamental tone produced by the strings is determined by the

1. length of the string and

2. the propagation speed of the wave created in the string, which depends on its:

  • tension and
  • mass (thickness and density).

The sound-pitch of the string is not influenced by the strength of the pluck.
