haven't measured distortion BUT have made varieties of V shaped and rounded corrugations in pitches ranging from approximation 1.5 to 3 mm

I was looking primarily at the resonance that happens roughly between 3 and 10khz depending on corrugation size/ribbon width/ and diaphragm material.

If the pitch/ size of the two corrugation types were the same , the resonances and waterfall looked about the same and the overall freq response was close as well

I didn't see any useful difference between them

I did not do destructive testing on the V shaped ones to see if they failed any sooner than the rounded variety so dont really know about their durability
