28ed5
Division of the 5th harmonic into 28 equal parts (28ED5) is related to 12EDO, but with the 5/1 rather than the 2/1 being just. The octave is about 5.8656 cents compressed and the step size is about 99.5112 cents. This tuning has a meantone fifth as the number of divisions of the 5th harmonic is multiple of 4. This tuning also has the perfect fourth which is more accurate for 4/3 than that of 12EDO, as well as 18/17, 19/16, and 24/17.

Regular temperaments
- Main article: Quindromeda family
28ed5 can also be thought of as a generator of the 2.3.5.17.19 subgroup temperament which tempers out 1216/1215, 1445/1444, and 6144/6137, which is a cluster temperament with 12 clusters of notes in an octave (quindromeda temperament). This temperament is supported by 12-, 169-, 181-, 193-, 205-, 217-, 229-, and 241edo.
Equating 225/224 with 256/255 leads quintakwai (12&193), which tempers out 400/399 (also equating 20/19 and 21/20) in the 2.3.5.7.17.19 subgroup, and 361/360 with 400/399 leads quintagar (12&217), which tempers out 476/475 (also equating 19/17 with 28/25) in the 2.3.5.7.17.19 subgroup.
