Inharmonicity in the piano is a well-known and necessary characteristic.
However, this is due to the physics of the string itself. When the
vibrating medium is an air column, those physical principles would not
apply. I believe it is accurate to say that acousticians who question
whether it is possible to have inharmonic partials in a wind instrument
readily acknowledge the phenomenon in the piano.
