    Hello all.

    I need a RCT tuning file for a Martin Mersenne single 8 harpsichord.

    Does anyone have one?

    Thanks!

    Tune it by ear.  There isn't really any noteworthy stretch on a harpsichord.   All harpsichords should be tuned by ear and not to equal temperament.

    But if you do use Sanderson Accu Tuner  set the F A C to 2 2 2 and it's a very acceptable  go to tuning .
