What the lowest note you can select when creating custom tunings, and can you change the pitch from 440 to 432?

Recommended Posts

I have a 9 string, and I’ve been wanting to replace it with a variax for my projects I have.  I tune to standard,  but in 432, not 440. Standard is C# F# B E A D G B E, but I’d like to go lower if possible I was looking to buy a new variax, but wanted to make sure I can recreate everything the same as I have with my 9 string. I bought a used shurkien a few months ago, but it had issues, so I returned it. I do like the new JTV-89F because of the ebony and Floyd, but the shuriken has the longer scale.

Any help is appreciated.

The alt tuning algorithms detune everything relative to the guitar's physical tuning, and the smallest interval is a half-step. So no, you can't tune the guitar to A 440 and have it detune only 8 cents to 432.

The lowest note you can get from the Variax is an octave lower than the physical tuning of the low E string.
