That's on a guitar though.

Can you prove to me that it has nothing to do with the following:

- Pickup(s) respond(ing) better to those frequencies
- Higher tension on string making a more stable sound
- Intonation better? is your guitar perfectly intonated at 440hz

And a personal thought:
- Subconsciously hearing the sound as something (more) fresh, after hearing/absorbing 440HZ after so long.

I'm interested in these thoughts. Though I imagine how pickups respond to this frequency rather than 440Hz would have more to do with the wiring of the individual pickup.

To be honest, I've only ever heard one (modern) song in 432:

Troll threads come so rarely to the bass forum these days that we embrace them with open arms for the sake of a little amusement. Plus, you have to admit, this one is pretty damn good: you just have to say something in response, but there's absolutely nothing to say!

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 LOVE how you think you've the brain power to KNOW if a frequency is having a healing effect on ones cells or not.

You clearly know nothing about nothing so do us all more informed people a favor and sit in the back of the classroom with your mouth shut where you belong.

Don't listen to this wishy washy crap. I have since revised my views and now use a middle C of 256 Hz as my sole personal pitch standard.

Of course, C 256 is A 432 in Pythagorean intonation, but I don't use Pythagorean intonation and C 256 wins my favor for use with any tuning system.


I'll head to the back of the classroom now.
