"When it comes to tuning an instrument, we think of the standard A note at 440 Hz as the reference standard, but it wasn't always that way.

Prior to 1940 there were a variety of standards, although A=432 Hz (also known as Verdi's A) was the one most frequently used. It wasn't until 1940 that the US adopted A=440 as the standard, with the rest of the world following in 1953. But why did the world change in the first place?

For one thing, A=432 is supposed to be a more "natural" vibration based on the fact that it's divisible by 3, unlike A=440 which is only divisible by 2. A=432 is said to just feel right, and when tuning without any pitch reference, trained musicians are said to automatically tune their instruments there, and the ancient Egyptians and Greeks have also been found to have tuned their instruments at 432.

The science of Cymatics, which is the study of visible sound and vibration, is apparently on the side of A=432 as well." —Bobby Owsinski
