@Fuppis Glad you completely ignore the whole conversation and published one video that which as MaZtoR pointed out something that doesn't seems to be based on any proven facts by proper methods.


Also in regards to Pythagorean tunings, the video safely avoid the mention of the base note of the tuning... You get an A at 432Hz only if you use a D based tuning and that's only true if the D is at 288 Hz which is quite the assumption at the time where they had no means of measuring frequency reliably. Also it would have been more interesting to note that 288 is 12*12*2 which actually tie in with the 12 numbers rhetoric of the video but sadly he didn't but instead decide to start from 27Hz because?


It's an interesting thing to start back from the Pythagorean tuning but you also have to notice that we don't use it anymore because we now use an equal temperament that can't fit with the frequency division made with the Pythagorean tuning.

8 months later, not really bothered by the 440 thing anymore, I think I should admit Mr. firekorn is right. It is just a mind thing after all...

Placebo effect strikes again. At least you caught it partyG...


Using 432hz as reference for A only leads you to down tuning your guitar a tiny bit.

Guitars aren't even that precise.


Fixed fret micro tonal guitars is more important. You would never have such a slight down tune actually work the same on every fret on a normal guitar anyways because they aren't all that precise.
