Comment on the contribution of the piano sound board on the timbre or tone color perceived by the audience. What do the pedals have to do with that?

Depressing the una corda pedal has a profound impact on the sound in that fewer of the strings are directly struck by the hammer.
Depressing the sustain pedal lifts all the dampers from the strings which cause more sympathetic resonance. Big timbral difference!Still not sure what the sostenuto pedal even does and I have played the piano for 4 decades :-D

Sostenuto on a GRAND holds the first fistful you engage, anywhere on the piano. Sostenuto on an upright is a crap shoot, by model and manufacturer. Welcome back DOG! Who's a good boy??!!
