Your favourite or preferred shape to build / play

hi every one! I’m looking to build my 3rd dulcimer.

my first was a 26” vsl large box dulcimer,

my second was a 20” vsl elliptical design.

For my third I’m thinking about an “aorell” (or jelly bean) shape. I was wondering what everyone’s favourite shape/design was to build and play? I’m sure it’s been asked before but What (if any) are your pros and cons for those shapes?
