432, 440 or Fight

There was a slogan in the 19th century that encouraged the territorial expansion of America to the north west. 54--40 or Fight. (As I remember my high school history.)

Lately I have been switching back and forth between my 432 fiddle and my 440 violin, that it is just not a problem. I still like playing in 432 a little better.

I'm especially grateful that the Crystal Beach String Band is playing in A-432. It's our most unusual quality, I think. Besides just being a rather large string band, with six musicians.

The album is called The Cost. It's almost ready. By next week we should be making announcements.
