Concert Pitch & Tuner

Concert pitch is a standard tuning that all instruments tune to. The "A" note above middle C on a piano and the 1st string 5th fret "A" on a guitar should have the frequency of 440 Hz. That would be 440 cycles per second.

This term in usually abbreviated as "440 Concert Pitch"
