3L 17s is a 2/1-equivalent (octave-equivalent) moment of symmetry scale containing 3 large steps and 17 small steps, repeating every octave. 3L 17s is related to 3L 5s, expanding it by 12 tones. Generators that produce this scale range from 780¢ to 800¢, or from 400¢ to 420¢. This is the MOS which splits its small steps 6-6-5 between its large steps. Its most consonant generator is a 14/11 supermajor third, and its generator in general is a major third of no more than 7\20edo (420 cents).
