I wonder if there is an easy way to switch the whole slab from a-440 to A-432 as permanent tuning -- and back again. Anyone know?

Thanks

Chordo24, the System Tuning setting in the SYSTEM:Utility menu allows the global tuning of the instrument to be adjusted. Once set to a non-default value, pressing the YES/+ and NO/- buttons simultaneously should reset the tuning value back to A=440.

In addition to the System Tuning, each PIANO/E.PIANO/SUB section has its own Fine Tune parameter, however I'm not sure the adjustment range will be sufficient to reach A=432.

May I ask if you can provided a little more background information on what you are hoping to achieve, please?

Kind regards,
James

There is no (not that I know of) scientific prove for this, but FWIW: https://attunedvibrations.com/432hz-healing/

From that link ...


432Hz is the harmonic intonation of nature

According to the above information, playing and listening to music that has been tuned to 432Hz would make your body, and the organic world which surrounds it, resonate in a natural way. This would fill you with a sense of peace and well-being, regardless of the kind of song chosen to play or listen to.

Opening your ears for music that has been tuned to the “scientific” 432Hz frequency would benefit the entire planet and everyone who lives on it, while listening to music tuned to the “disharmonic” 440Hz frequency does harm by causing stress, negative behaviors and unstable emotions.

Listening to 432Hz music resonates inside your body, releases emotional blockages, and expands consciousness. 432Hz music allows you to tune into the knowledge of the universe around us in a more intuitive way.


That might explain why my Dream Catcher causes me to dream about naked nuns chasing me through tunnels.

haha At least you have a Dream Catcher wink

Admittedly, I tune one of my acoustics to the lower tension of 432Hz, only because it's old...

Thanks for kind and speedy reply.

I wouldn`t dare to open pandora`s box discussing A-440 vs. A-432. But searching for a preowned vertical in NL, CH and D (accoustic I`m afraid) I noticed many more with A-432 tuning than with sostenuto pedal I was lookin for.

I really enjoyed that tuning.

Thanks again

Yeah, but that only works if it's a Thursday, Venus is in full alignment with Mars and you had pasta for dinner the night before. Otherwise you need to tune to 404Hz.

some of the kawai digitals have optional temperaments which should work well with music from the baroque through early romantic (mid 19th cent) periods. in conjunction with lowering the pitch slightly (435 is consistent with 19th cent. for example), you might like the results. our late 19th cent. upright never sounded better than 436 combined with a victorian well temperament (not available on the kawai's but some of them have kirnberger ).
