Thread Name: Mountain dulcimers: shape and sound
Subject: RE: Mountain dulcimers: shape and sound
Overall size and the volume within the soundbox have more to do with it as do the wood in the fretboard (the actual sounding board of a lap dulcimer) and then the wood in the box itself. Gauge and type of strings as well as string height....All of these have infinitely more to do with volume of sound than does the shape.
