Default Re: Just how low can you go?

I've gotten my drones all the way down to a reference pitch of 413 Hz. However, I'm tuning them against low G, not low A (which was at 464 Hz). With a C natural instead of a C#, this allowed me to play in G major which is useful for playing Northumbrian and Irish tunes, and I'm sure a whole host of other genres.

Sound samples can be found in the posts below.
