    I seek advice on the thickness of a concert harp soundboard.

    Those dimensions are far thicker than any I have noticed on a harp I have played.

    You could ask Howard Bryan, http://www.hbryan.com

    I have seen some written material on this, but don’t remember where. You might be able to look up the Wurlitzer patents, or some of Lyon & Healy’s for guidance. I think they are thicker in the center for strength, but sometimes have ribs for reinforcing the sounding board.

    Thak Diana for suggesting Howard Byron. He has been a great help.
