Hi all, in the process of rebuilding a Seeburg xylophone for my late
(1928) Seeburg E nickelodeon, I discovered that the xylophone bars are
tuned to A=435 Hz as opposed to the later day 440 Hz. Is it easy to
tune the bars to 440 Hz or is it better to tune the piano to 435 Hz?
The xylophone and regular stack came from (apparently) earlier
instruments. Thanks very much for your thoughts!
