432 Hz.

Anybody else tuning their bass (along with the rest of the band and their instruments) to standard tuning @ 432hz rather than A440hz????

I would be very interested in hearing how anyone's "feeling" of the music or sing has improved, and how you feel energy/health-wise after playing at this frequency....

Really one of these has health benefits over the other? I'm admittedly a cranky old cynic, but if you get on board with the "chakra healing benefits of 423hz, then I have a nice line aluminum chapeaus to sell you. Yes, the overall vibration/tonal quality is different but impacting your energy and health, is bollocks.

I've had a quick look at this and can say that as a physicist that I think it definitly spherical and plural.

I study sounddesign and told a classmate of mine about this stuff. He made a song in 432 and he said it was actually waaay easier to balance everything out, like mixing and stuff.
I read somewhere that it would be much better for vocalists, less strain on the vocal chords...
I think it might have an impact chakra wise. Everything is energy and has a certain vibration. Light, sound, ... matter, etc.. And since everything comes from the same source there might be a perfect vibration of some sorts.

I thought this was interesting...

A=440 Versus A=432 Standard Tuning

A lot has been written on the A=432Hz tuning preference that is mathematically consistent with the Fibonacci series of numbers, and, therefore, universal design. Among the advocates of A=432Hz standard tuning is musician and researcher, Brian T. Collins, who launched a website dedicated to posting articles supportive to this growing musical-metaphysical movement for recovering optimal spirituality through music “therapy.”(21)

Collins wrote, “The current tuning of music based on A=440 Hz does not harmonize on any level that corresponds to cosmic movement, rhythm, or natural vibration. Mozart and Verdi both based their music on natural vibration, and A=432 was nicknamed the ‘Verdi tuning.’ Most western music, including popular New Age music is still tuned at unnatural A=440Hz. The difference between A=440 Hz and A=432 Hz is only 8 vibrations per second, but it is a perceptible difference in the human consciousness experience.”(21)

An expanded review of A=432Hz tuning finds it throughout the religious world according to many researchers. “One of the oldest uses of sound is for ceremonial and religious purposes. Whether the chanting of a Hindu mantra, the recitation of the Jewish cantor, a Christian hymn, or the call of a Moslem muezzin, sacred sound makes its way into all of the various world's religions. According to Robert Lewis, a student of the Rosicrucian Fellowship: ‘The purpose of music in religious service is to raise the vibratory rate of a congregation upward through a series of overtones to a spiritual level.’"(21)

“Archaic Egyptian instruments that have been unearthed, so far, are largely tuned to A=432Hz. In ancient Greece (the school book original place for music) their instruments were predominantly tuned to 432Hz. Within the archaic Greek Eleusenian Mysteries, Orpheus is the god of music, death and rebirth, and was the keeper of the Ambrosia and the music of transformation (his instruments were tuned at 432Hz).(25)

“. . . [O]ne can make audible harmonics, such as 72Hz (9 x 8 Hz), 144Hz (18 x 8 Hz) and 432Hz; and then further synchronize the music in binaural 8Hz, to reawaken us to the orchestra of our thoughts, in the cathedrals of our minds. Such musical harmonics may also resonate and upload one into a geometrical progression and harmonic to time, which is generally accepted to be the congruence of the amino acid/codon metabolism within the DNA double helix.(25)

Guess what. Pitch changed constantly throughout human history. 432 "natural" pitch is bullshit. Its proclaimed by the same people who proclaim that smart meters are making them ill and that cell phone towers are killing bees.

And besides, I've looked at my crystal ball and I think this thread is going down to closure soon anyway.

One of our bass players has been captured by a cult and has started posting threads accordingly. Maybe we should just shove this over to the musicians talk and watch what happens.

Well..it's usually one of the ways these threads go anyway. Unless you can somehow relate 432 hz to alcoholic consumption and debauchery.
