I'm curious if there is any benefit in tuning the air chamber to a perfect whole note? I can't understand how that would make any difference for the other notes in the A440 scale except to make one very wolfy note when you hit there. My thought was to tune my chamber to a quarter tone, D sharp -50c for example. That way the wolf is split in two, you get slightly higher volume on the D and the D#, but neither is a real wolf. Any thoughts?
Again, I'd like to know the benefit, if any, of having an air chamber to a whole note of the A440 scale. Can this increase overall volume or is this some sort of legend?
Finally, can we say that it is, in fact, virtually impossible to _eliminate_ a wolfy area on the mandolin?
