**Jacobin chords** are essentially tempered dyadic chords tempered by the jacobin comma, 6656/6655.

Since the temperament is very complex, even the simplest jacobin chords are 55-odd-limit, although they don't contain a lot of notes, just complex intervals. There are

- 1-11/8-16/11 with steps 11/8-55/52-11/8;
- 1-64/55-11/8 with steps 64/55-13/11-16/11, and its inverse
- 1-13/11-11/8 with steps 13/11-64/55-16/11.

For tetrads, there are

- 1-11/8-16/11-104/55 with steps 11/8-55/52-13/10-55/52;
- 1-13/11-11/8-104/55 with steps 13/11-64/55-11/8-55/52, and its inverse
- 1-64/55-11/8-16/11 with steps 64/55-13/11-55/52-11/8;
- 1-64/55-11/8-104/55 with steps 64/55-13/11-11/8-55/52, and its inverse
- 1-13/11-11/8-16/11 with steps 13/11-64/55-55/52-11/8.
