Re: below the fundamental? Definitely!

There are actually nodes on a violin string where you can play a harmonic (you don't press the string down all the way-just touch it and bow) and it will sound a subharmonic a full octave below the pitch of the open string's primary tone. There's *lots* of info in good instruments!

As RBP says, this is what makes different instruments different- otherwise music would all sound like little beeps that comes outa computers. Check out the links on this thread- the sites put together by Paul C are incredible if you're really into this stuff.
