    Most of us here use the old Helmholz notation in which "Middle c" is notated as 'ci.' In the 'Scientific Pitch Notation', 'Note-Octave Notation' or American Standard Pitch Notation "Middle C" is notated as 'C4.'

    If you are using the Helmholz notation your Bb6 is very high indeed; if using the American Standard, then it really doesn't go all that high.

    Which system does the quote use?

    Just by looking at Rowuk's name you can tell he is a professional. :thumbsup:


    A little bit off topic. Sorry

    So we're talking about a pitch sounding at about 7460 Hz?

    I do that every day - entirely effortlessly.
    My dog whistle went a bit flat after I had cleaned it in the dish-washer the other day.

    Do you have a video of your dog whistle technique ?

    There is quite a bit of material, but I haven't got around to doing something "appropiate" with it.
