Tuning Standards for Coin Pianos & Orchestrions
By Ray Bauer

> Most American coin pianos and orchestrions should be tuned to A=435,

Yes, A=435 is the better tuning pitch for the above.  I use this for
my Reproduco.  That pitch allows good tone alignment with the pipes and
rosewood xylophone.  Some symphony orchestras now tune their pianos to
A=442... go figure!
