My dreadnaught guitar rings best on a C note. So the cavities do have effects. You actually tune a violin cavity when you carve it. There's a science to the arch of the top and back, as well as the height of the sides. If not tuned properly, annoying things like wolf notes, and dead notes happen. A properly tuned acoustic cavity in a violin can produce an instrument that fills a stadium with music without using any electronic amplification.1 point
