Descriptors for devices that produce sound but which constitute integral building systems (e.g.g., "burglar alarms", "intercom systems") are found in the Built Works Components hierarchy. Descriptors for parts of sound devices (e.g.g., "resonators", "mouthpieces") and for implements used to set the sound-producing mechanism of a device into operation (e.g., "plectra") are found in the Object Components hierarchy.
