Re: Which pitch pipe do I need?

A tuning fork is a very good instrument for honing one's aural skills. It is a great tool that is always in tune, but I really only think it benefits the user. The director gets to hear the A 440 (and even if the singers were completely quiet, they probably still wouldn't be able to hear it) and the...
