440 hz vs. 432 hz – my guitar experiment

The standard concert pitch we use today has the “A” note at 440hz, but there’s a ton of people out there that are saying that tuning the “A” to 432hz sounds much better and has a better effect on people. The jury is still out for me. There’s alot of info and dis-info on the internet on this subject so it’s hard to separate fact from fiction. I made this video as an experiment to see which one sounds best to me.

I played the song two different times. First with the guitar tuned to standard concert pitch of A=440 hertz (hz) or cycle per second (cps), then with A=432 hz, using a Korg chromatic tuner. Then I interspersed clips of the videos together to try to determine which sounded better. The video starts with shorter clips and ends with longer clips. This first short clip starts with A=440hz. You be the judge……..

The name of the song is “A Whiter Shade of Pale.” arranged by Hiroshi Masuda, youtube: peacejoytown

1973 Triumph Motorcycles – Only 1 out of 25 bikes sold in America is a Triumph

Simply because there are far more enthusiasts than experts.

In motorcycling, as in everything else, the expert is a very rare breed. So when he chooses his machine, his approach is quite different from that of the average enthusiast. He’s more than a good rider, he’s an accomplished rider. He understands motorcycles completely. He respects attention to engineering, and isn’t impressed by just gadgets and gizmos. Sure, he wants a good liiking bike. But to him, the truly beautiful motorcycle is the classic. A machine that has evolved through years of development and refinement. One that ultimately combines form and function into the perfect design. And because of his vaster riding experience, the expert can feel even subtle differences in handling that might completely escape the enthusiast. And he knows precisely why those differences exist. There are a lot of good motorcycles around for the enthusiasts who represent the great majority. But we make the Triumph for a special kind of person. We always have. We always will.
