As the title says I was wondering who here has experimented with 432hz tuning as opposed to 440hz standard tuning. I don't buy in to all the conspiracies about it but notherless I thought it would be interesting to try out
What are the conspiracy theories? It is supposed to be better for recording somehow? Intriguing!
I've played flat before, when I was having some left-hand issues a few years back and tuned down a half-step. Sounded great on my guitar, as others have mentioned it can, all dark and smoky. But a half-step is much lower than 432 of course.

I tried 444hz because it gives you a C5 at 528 which is supposed to do something special to the heart and bring world peace and, I think, unicorns? It sounded a little sharp to me.
Amateurs practice until we get it right; professionals practice until they no longer get it wrong.
