Maybe someone will smila at this post….as it might a bit odd.
From time to time I get a high sound in my ear. Probably a tinnitus-light sound. It starts suddenly and stay for about half a minute. It’s usually the “same tone”, so I checked by whistling the tone I hear close to my chromatic auto-tuner. It is a middle “A”. What disturbs me is that the frequency on the tuner shows 443 Hz. I have noticed when I play by my self in a room, that I end up on something between 441-443Hz when I check by the tuner. When playing in the band or in the philarmonic orchestra, I have no problem to play in tune a the others (440 HZ), but I feel more relaxed when playing above 441 Hz.
Has anyone the same experience??
I normally can identify tones fairly well by ear,but why is my tinnitus on middle “A”??
Have a nice weekend
Hey there Bo, what an interesting observation. I wouldn’t worry about it either way, it just seems to be “what is.”
It takes a pretty damn good ear to discern between a couple of points when playing in an ensemble.
Recently I got a call from an MD saying that the orchestra was tuning at 441HZ and wanted to check that would be okay for the horn section… I actually thought he was kidding. True story.
