An old onomatopoeia for the sound of a vibrating string - for instance of a bow or a musical instrument, or the sound of a vibrating spring of (for instance) an air gun.
The term twang is also used when referring to the high pitched, nasal vocals used by some pop performers, especially country singers. It allows for a higher vocal reach that would be possible using the standard guttural technique. It can be used as an alternative to falsetto singing. Willie Nelson almost always sings with twang voice.
