Although in the tuning systems used in the 1600s, when Willy built the traps, they ''weren't'' the same note as each other (run a Google search for "just tuning" and/or "well temperament" if you want details); that said, keyboards of the time nearly always used the same key for both and simply re-tuned the instrument depending on whether A-sharp or B-flat was more appropriate.[[/note]]\\
