Changing grub default tune

I have the following at the end of the /boot/grub/grub.cfg header
section, just above the various linux menu entries:

play 1920 440 12 330 4

 This reflects playing frequency then duration, where 440 is A at 440
 cycles per second.

 Yes, it says not to edit that file by hand, but it actually works and
 remains stable.
