A recent observation from another sound searcher.
We have many threads on sound quality of a mandolin , and I have not noticed in any of those threads the factor of string width. Recently I am playing a mandolin with a string width wider than I am used to, in the past. The width at the nut is 1 1/16, the width at the bridge is 1 9/16 - a hair. The fingerboard has plenty of room too. Many other factors are different, but I am wondering if this is another factor to consider and want opinions from builders as they are the sound makers. Does a wider FB and string width give a stronger sound, more volume, deeper tone, or ......? Thanks in advance for your expertise.
I have the world in a jug, and the stopper in my hand.
