Preferences were obtained from both experienced and untrained Ss concerning musical passages presented in both Just (natural) and Equal Tempered (synthetic) tuning systems. While a significant preference for Just tonation was recorded for all Ss, no significant difference for preference was found between moderately experienced musicians and non-performers. Boys showed a greater, and significant, preference for Just tuning than did girls.
