Historical Temperaments

We offer a wide range of historical temperaments for the historical enthusiast. Ranging from a pythagorean tuning, to mediæval meantone temperaments, to the best of the baroque well-temperaments, we're excited to explore and offer these exciting historical solutions. While recognizing the practicality and utility of equal temperament, we are not unsympathetic to those bemoaning the loss of pure tuning brought on by equal temperament. If you're ready to embrace the warmth and texture of pre-enlightenment temperaments, these are for you:

I-IV syntonic meantone; Bremmer EBVT 1,2, and 3; Broadwood Best; Coleman 11 & 16; FiskII; Harald Vogel I-V comma meantone; Kellner; KirnbergerIII; Lehmann-Bach; Mersenne-Chaumont; Rouseau French Standard; Stanhope I-III comma; Stanhope equal beating; Thomas Young#1; Vallotti Well (1750); Valotti-Young Well; WerkmeisterIII
