I've been strumming in some nice mandolins with a strumming machine I built.
The Results have been fairly dramatic and I wondering if you guys have any
idea what is actually happening to the sound boards to realize these dramatic
improvements. I'm especially interested in the opinions of people that have
actually done some break in / de-damping procedures.
Reference: 30 rpm gear drive is producing 1 strum per second and strum times
range from 160 to 300 hours. We're talking a lot of strumming.
Thank you all for your time and consideration
