    Whole numbers are nice to look at. But what if our definition of a second was slightly different? Like 9,000,000,000 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the cesium 133 atom instead of 9,192,631,770? Then 8Hz wouldn't be 8Hz anymore.

    You are right about the definition of the second being arbitrary. While we use the cesium 133 standard now but it comes from dividing the day. It's an accident of our dividing days by 24, then by 60 and 60 again. If we did 10 hrs, 10 minutes, 10 seconds etc or 60/60/60 we'd have different frequencies.
    Also, 8Hz is already not 8Hz. Schumann frequency can be said to be 8Hz, but not 8.0Hz or 8.00Hz. Commonly accepted value is 7.83 which is objectively not a whole number.

    8Hz is 8Hz no matter what we call it. There's a Divine Purpose to why everything exists the way it does. What else could a second be? It's the result of equal divisions of the length of a day. If a second was a different length of time, then the whole time system would have to change and it wouldn't line up and be neatly divided into even segments.

    Anyway... I would just like to connect with anyone who uses 432Hz tuning

    OP, play at 432 if you like.

    Just because you start a thread, doesn't mean you own it. You never know where it'll go (except in this case).

    What's all this stuff about 9s? It's 9 because 4+3+2=9? And that means something? Why isn't it all about 5s? Because everbody knows that 4+3=7-2=5. I rest my case.

    Uh huh.
    You do realize you're treading extremely close to the forbidden topic of religion, here, right? (Read the IMPORTANT note at the bottom of every TDPRI page). Maybe sex, and hate, too, with that sausagefest comment. :lol:

    I've used A=432 tuning as an alternative to Eb tuning, mainly to make it easier on the singer. Works fine…it’s just another tool to make music…

    Apparently, I miss out on this yesterday.

    Is there a tonewood that resonates at 432Hz? And, maybe a finish that augments the resonant nodes at 108Hz, 216Hz, etc.

    Oh, and all things being equal, does it really matter if your 'A' string is in tune? @Obsessed

    My high b and e are always tuned out to “be in tune”

    Hey! We are guitar players we are NEVER in tune;)

    I'm amazed this thread has not mentioned the Solfeggio frequencies.

    While whole numbers are very convenient, they have nothing to do with the natural order of things.
    I give you...

    Even segments are even whether or not they contain decimal points. A day would still be a day if minutes contained 96 shorter seconds. But we would call the same frequencies by different numbers.

    Our forklift at work vibrates the floor slab at 7 Hz when it idles next to my office. There is no greater laxative.

    I really think we should have a Flat Earth 432 forum and keep all this nonsense in there. Then I would ignore it just like I do now, but the people starting threads would maybe have to ask themselves if some of their ideas are plain wrong and some non-internet-based education is in order...

    BTW I'm not denying the OP's experience: maybe he finds that tuning a bit flat sounds / feels "better". But let's dump the pseudo-scientific explanations.

    I looked up the math for equal tempered scale. If we do A=427.63 I can tune my B's to 60 cycle hum.

    About 40 years ago, I was in the retail profession. We had an infrared motion detector to let us know we had customers. It sent low-voltage AC to a buzzer.
    When I replaced the buzzer with one designed for low-voltage DC, it sounded like the first note of "Satisfaction." Which is a B. (Yeah, closer to 120 Hz.)

    It did remind me to make sure the customer could get satisfaction shopping in my store.
