    It started as a bit of a light hearted rant. Then got into a really interesting discussion of why. Then there was a bit of tension but everyone cooled down. Then back to light hearted.

    This is why I love tdpri

    For lack of a better description, in the video example with keys and uke, the 432 sample sounded more dull, lifeless, and flat to me. It seemed to be lacking in harmonic overtones, which, to my ears, made the 440 example sound punchier and livelier.

    I thought the same. I also wondered how different the perception would be if we had heard them in the reverse order.

    And to be honest, I also wondered how different the effect would have been if it were a piece of music I actually liked!

    I just don't have time for this. I have been so busy trying to figure out which direction my cables should go & looking for that transparent overdrive.

    I'm clearly breaking the law every time I plug in, by assaulting the ears of anyone who can hear my abysmal attempts at sounding like a real lead guitar player.

    That one always makes me chuckle.

    My great uncle was a photographer. It was the trade he and his two brothers chose to escape the poverty of owing their souls to the company store after their father was killed in the huge coal mine disaster in eastern Tennessee in 1906. In fact, photography was how Grandpa met my Grandmother. Back in the '20s, photography companies sent their guys around to the big department stores in the big cities. It would be publicized far in advance, and on the big day, hundreds would line up to sit for their portrait. Photographer sees pretty girl...

    Anyhow, Grandpa's brother ended up in Dallas, working for the photo labs that developed all of the film shot on the moon landing. Some months after the landing, Uncle Truman drove his old, but immaculate VW Beetle up to Illinois to visit his favorite niece (my Mom).

    When I ran out to the driveway to greet him, he handed me a big leather valise. He would only say it was a special surprise.

    After supper, Dad got out his projector screen, and Uncle Truman proceeded to show us thousands of slides. The entire NASA photographic record of the landing. Everything was shot in black and white slide film on very expensive German cameras. And the detail was
    absolutely incredible. Including the shots of earth from the moon. Nothing like the few grainy shots published in LIFE magazine which morons use to claim it was all shot on a Nevada desert movie set.

    Back to the original topic. I carefully select guitars that resonate to 440 when tap-tuned.
    Except for rosewood boards. They are darker, so they resonate better at 432. Or three.:twisted:

    Someone sponsor me for a round the world trip and a giant ball of string, lets put this to bed once and for all. I'll need expenses covered too, and a guitar shopping allowance, food, entertainment, women etc. ;)

    I had already stopped it at 1:38 and was about to bail before I saw your comment. I turned it back to see.

    What I liked about it was that his parody was still about the most convincing piece of advocacy I've yet seen for 432...

    I believe that NASA used Hasselblad medium format cameras for those photos.

    Where I live, everyone's tuned in to 4:20.

    In SRVs case, I bet it's about all those open string licks he plays

    Marketing idea! Do you suppose there could be a significant profit in a cranial Faraday cage with a proper ground wire running to the bottom of the wearer's shoe?

    I usually detune to E flat. One day I was recording a band who was into Cymatics. They told me that tuning to E flat was closer to their kind. I just told them it was easier to figure out Hendrix tunes when I figured out that he tuned his guitar in E flat.
