Sympathetic Strings

04/22/20 01:36:13PM

What do the wise and knowledgeable luthiers of FOTMD think about sympathetic strings? I learned that several of the instruments closely related to the scheitholt utilize them. It seems to me that playing noter style it would add nicely to at least add sympathetic strings to the drone strings. Is there a luthier who adds any? Is there a reason it seems to be so rare? I tend to hoard old strings and extra strings without any plan for what to do with them so I do plan to cook one up soon with a fullĀ  scale of sympathetic strings just for curiosity sake.
