I think all pianos are out of tune. Equal temperament doesn't agree with me. Organs are worse, because the different registers seem to be out of tune in different ways. Bagpipes, on the other hand, can (and usually do) achieve excellent mean-tone tuning. Irina (Orthodox choral singer) -- Varsinen an laynynay, saraz no arlet rastynay. (myself)
