    A over middle C has been defined as many different frequencies over the course of classical music. it varied anywhere from a4= 392 hz to a4=465 hz and varied in some cases from city to city before becoming standardized. I fail to see how lowering it 8 hz imparts any kind of magic. also does nature use equal temperament or just temperament? I prefer not to ask the question of why notes are defined at the frequencies they are or why the ratio of a note from one octave to the next is 2:1. id rather race with the wheel given to me rather than to try remaking it.

    What a superb sentence. Couldn't agree more - both in relation to this non-debate and in general.

    Any time a major assertion in your argument is a subjective statement presented, with no evidence, as something that "cannot be doubted," you're on thin ice. :lol:

    I think stoner bands should tune to A4 = 420 Hz. :D lol

    I think there’s more info out there concerning the debunking of this myth than the endorsement of it. The conspiracy rests with those who present the latter as if the former isn’t more prevalent. Same goes for most of the assorted bogeymen and esoteric brain diarrheas documented in our conspiracy thread.

    So thankful for that Adam Neely video, and this thread. Before, I was always confused as to what the hell 432 hz had to do with anything important.

    Pretty funny how this sort of unimportant detail can create such a fuss.
