why is sonometer box hollow from inside?

A Sonometer is basically a scientific musical device used for studying vibrations. We can examine the relationship between frequency of the string to its tension, mass and length. It should have a hollow tube so that the string vibrations travel unimpeded (unobstructed) through the medium (which is air). This would give us damp free vibrations and make the experiment much more efficient.
