This autoharp is tuned to quarter-comma meantone, an ancient, very pure tuning that is only good in six keys, since all the necessary tuning discrepancies are shoved into the unplayable keys. Modern equal temperament, the current worldwide standard, distributes the unavoidable tuning errors equally among all keys, but is consequently less pure. Modern equal temperament is equally bad or good in all keys, depending on whether your glass is half empty or half full. But behold the celestial purity of this ancient temperament, which was widely used for almost three hundred years before equal temperament came along.
