17 equal
« on: July 29, 2011, 02:38:14 PM »

Came across a few videos on youtube that demonstrated 17tet guitars. The sound was wildly beautiful. Anyone here experimented with this temperament? I have to say I'm very interested in refretting a guitar to this tuning...

17 keeps diatonic intact but has new scales like Amity for example.. 11/8 and 13/8 are interesting resources to play with. I never was drawn into the ET personally, but I have a 17-EDO guitar none the less. Ivor Darreg I think I remember saying that its more bright than 19 on guitar - Which I'd agree with.  Lately I've been drawn to 18, 21, 22, 23, and 26.

I've heard several clips myself.  I think it is a good choice for guitar.  If you don't have enough notes, you can use the same slots to refret to 34-EDO, which is also very good for guitar - if you like having that many notes on the fretboard.

I have a video here of me playing a 17 et - but it buzzes a bit - I've since fixed that.

A guy on the XA chat and maybe this site- Peter K - has a 34-tone / 17-tone. Thats a sick Idea - 34 to the first octave, then after 17.
17 supports machine, and "maqamic" - a recent temperament Mike Battaglia threw on the xenharmonic list. Its an adaptive temperament for learning maqams. Its pretty insane. 16-tone has pelogic. pretty cool eh??
