    Your frequencies are wrong.

    I guess I better get practicing then. I've got another octave to go yet to get there. Here I had thought I'd reached the pinnacle already.:lol:

    Ok, stchasking, how about this?

    A on the staff is 440 Hz
    C above that A is 523.25 Hz
    High C is 1046.5 Hz
    Double high C is 2093 Hz
    Tripple high C is 4186 Hz
    Quadruple high C is 8372 Hz
    Quintuple high C is 16744 Hz

    Every halfnote is 1.05946309435930 times the one below regarding frequency.

    I can´t see the picture you posted quite clearly, I´m affraid.

    Maybe I´ve misunderstood everything completely? :-?

    Sofus' frequencies aren't "wrong" they are just rounded in his first post. Here is nice little chart for those of you worried about more than just "C"s... LOL!

    OK, so last night I could repeatedly hit a 698.46Hz, but since the wavelength is only 49.4 cm, why did my music keep falling off of the stand?

    Were you perhaps using black jack mouthpieces?

    bilboinsa, did you play notes longer than 1 second?

    In that case you produced sound waves longer than just 49.4 cm!
    This could explain why they keep falling off . . .

    I´ve also noticed that you´ve used a value of sound speed in air equal to 345.0392 m/s.
    A more appropriate value might have been 343 m/s . . . :cool:

    Sofus,
    a trumpet double C is actually a Bb = 1975.53 Hz well tempered. But what is a couple of hertz between friends?

    An easy to read chart is here: Frequencies of Musical Notes
