I doubt I'm ever going to be able to tell the difference between 3/9th's and 4/9th's flat, but there's still plenty of music to make in the meantime. Really, the only instruments that are locked into their pitches are claviers, xylophones, and, uh, the melodica. Some instruments have more perfect intonation or greater fluidity of pitch than others, but you can more or less fudge it.
harps? harmonica?
