Hi, I was wondering what your comments would be on the relationship between rib depth and sound quality. I know people are going to say right away that the deeper the bass, the deeper the sound. But is it really the case? has any of our luthiers experimented with different depths on the same model? Rick Vizachero in Cincinnati owns a beautiful and powerful sounding orchestral bass that is not deep. I clarify that the top of the bass is very large, just the rib depth is not.
