My 432Hz C note bowl arrived and the frequency is something other than 432Hz, is this correct?

The frequencies of the notes other than A in the scale  are adjusted automatically in relation to the 432Hz tuned A note. This means that the frequencies of the other notes in the scale will be different from what you would expect in a standard equal-tempered tuning system where A=440Hz.

In a standard equal-tempered tuning system, the frequency of the A note above middle C is 440Hz, and each note in the scale is spaced equidistantly. However, in Verdi tuning, the frequency of the A note above middle C is set to 432Hz, and the other notes are adjusted accordingly to maintain the harmonic ratios between the notes.

The exact frequencies of the other notes in the scale will depend on the specific tuning system used. For example, in Pythagorean tuning, the frequency ratios between the notes are based on the perfect fifth interval, and the frequencies of the notes in the C major scale tuned to A=432Hz are as follows:

C: 256 Hz D: 288 Hz E: 324 Hz F: 341.3 Hz G: 384 Hz A: 432 Hz B: 486 Hz

However, other tuning systems, such as just intonation or mean-tone temperament, may produce slightly different frequencies for the same notes. Therefore, it's important to understand the specific tuning system used and how it affects the frequencies of the notes in order to accurately tune your instrument or use the product effectively.
