Overtone Music Network

a common space & database for harmonic overtones

I'm wondering if Kou Xiang blades are tuned to a specific note? If yes - what is the principle?

Good question. Actually I have no idea about that but I will ask Tran Quang Hai if I'll see him the next time. Or maybe he will response here if he knows the answer. Have you seen Vladiwar Nadishana's well tempered Kou Xiang with seven blades. But what 's the principle ? sure that it should sounds good :)
I meant - how the fundamental notes of each blade are selected to provide an overall overtone harmony? Also, somewhere I read that the Chinese (or occidental?) music scale is different from European one, so which one is used there?
I will try to research this in the web ...
My 7-blade well tempered Kou Xiang from Nadishana is tuned as follows:
C4, D4, G, A, D2, A#, E3.

If that gives you a hint about any principle. Good luck.
