The StarrBoard is a chromatic matrix of strings and frets, whose string spacing is such that thirteen strings span the same distance as an octave on a standard keyboard.By tuning the strings to a particular non 12tet scheme the StarrBoard can play justly in 12 equally spaced key centers, as modulation is easily accomplished by playing within higher or lower fret areas.
