440 Concert pitch?

Recommended Posts

It just refers to the tuning everyone agrees on for performing on stage- everyone should have an "A" at 440 Hz. Use an autotuner, or piano/keyboard to stay in concert tuning.

Maybe this is not the most precise science definition, but it will give you the clue...

440 means 440 Hz! Hz is a unit of measurement for frequency (number of vibrations per second). So, when you're tuned to 440, that means that when you pick 1st string pressed on 5th fret (A) it vibrates 440 times per second... Everybody agreed about it, I mean that 440 Hz should be A.

All tuners are set to concert pitch, so use a tuner and you'll get that tuning :)

Hope I've helped...

Cheers

Hey

it is possible to alter the frequency that some tuners will respond to, so that is worth keeping in mind.

I have had students who have done it without realising they are tuning to 435 or 444 or the like.
