In 13-limit just intonation, 39/32, the (lesser) tridecimal neutral third, is the otonal combination of primes 13 and 3 octave-reduced. It is the fifth complement of 16/13, which measures about 359.5¢.
39/32 differs from the Pythagorean minor third 32/27 by 1053/1024, about 48¢, from the classic minor third 6/5 by 65/64, about 27¢, from the rastmic neutral third 27/22 by 144/143, about 12¢, and from the undecimal neutral third 11/9 by 352/351, about 4.9¢.
39/32 is a fraction of a cent away from the neutral third found in the 7n family of edos.
39/32 is near the border-region between neutral thirds and supraminor thirds, so it has a dark edge to it compared to wider neutral thirds, while still sounding slightly brighter than a minor third like 6/5.
