6L 8s is a 2/1-equivalent (octave-equivalent) moment of symmetry scale containing 6 large steps and 8 small steps, with a period of 3 large steps and 4 small steps that repeats every 600.0¢, or twice every octave. 6L 8s is a child scale of 6L 2s, expanding it by 6 tones. Generators that produce this scale range from 171.4¢ to 200¢, or from 400¢ to 428.6¢.
