If you have Fibersen on the front does it make any difference acoustically if you have it on the back as well?
Hi Phil! It really doesn’t make a huge difference. Although my colleague Reigen suggests that the tightness and density of the back skin will affect the tone (i.e, using natural skin or even a pvc plate), and I’m sure it does in subtle ways, I don’t think it’s a factor that most people would probably notice.
Hi Kyle, thanks for the info. Looking to upgrade the skin on my shamisen. Might as well get it all done at the same time so I don’t have to send it away twice.
