Tuning forks are thought to have been invented in 1711 and are commonly used by musicians as a way to tune musical instruments, such as pianos, violins, guitars, and more.
They are typically constructed from steel and feature two prongs known as tines, which are activated by striking the tines against a hard surface. This produces an elongated tuned tone, serving as a reference point for you to tune the instrument by ear.
In addition, tuning forks are commonplace in sound therapy and meditation settings, used to provide certain frequencies and vibrations to deliver various healing qualities. The frequencies delivered by tuning forks range from 64 Hz all the way to 4096 Hz, depending on the size of the prongs.
For standard orchestral tuning, a fork with the tuning of A and measuring 440hz is used. In sound therapy, a fork with the frequency of 128Hz is more commonly used. Popular brands that manufacture tuning forks include Meinl and John Walker.

Musicians use a tuning fork as a tool to tune an instrument. The most common frequency for tuning is 440Hz, which is an A note. As this frequency is standard tuning, this is the most used tuning fork among musicians.
The standard healing frequency of a tuning fork is 128 Hz. Tuning forks that emit this frequency are commonly used in sound therapy and meditation environments.
You hit a tuning fork against a hardened surface at the end of the fork tines (prongs). By holding the fork on its handle at the top and striking the fork tines, the fork will then resonate and produce the tone.
