The thread has been awakened by a member who, far from seeking advice, is advertising a website s/he is associated with which is actually offering advice on just this topic though we are invited to add suggestions about what the website might add to improve its advice.
So it's not clear that anyone here is seeking advice; or at least not in the usual way.
It's a fascinating topic of course so I'm sure that won't stop us.
Thanks for the insight. Evidently we are suckers, eager to share our profound knowledge on our beloved instrument.
