# Bohpier

Bohpier temperament is a rank-two temperament for 7, 11, and 13 prime limits. It is a member of sensamagic, gariboh, arcturus, and mirkwai temperaments. It tempers out 100/99, 144/143, 196/195, and 275/273 in the 13-limit, as well as the sensamagic comma (245/243) and the gariboh comma (3125/3087). It is strongly related to Bohlen-Pierce scale, and from this it derives its name. Generator for the bohpier can be used either 13ED3, 19ED5, or 23ED7. 41EDO is an excellent tuning for the bohpier, with generator 5\41, and MOS of 8, 9, 17, 25, or 33 notes are available.
