Recently, we completed a comprehensive investigation of a huge part of the entire meson spectrum by considering both quarkonia and open-flavour mesons by means of a single common framework which unites the homogeneous Bethe-Salpeter equation that describes mesons as quark-antiquark bound states and the Dyson-Schwinger equation that governs the full quark propagator: Adopting two (as a matter of fact, not extremely diverse) models that attempt to grasp all principal aspects of the effective strong interactions entering identically in both these equations, we derived within this unique setup, for all mesons analysed, their masses and leptonic decay constants as well as, for the pseudoscalar ones among these mesons, their in-hadron condensates. Here, as a kind of promotion or teaser, we give but a few examples of the resulting collections of data, laying the main emphasis on the dependence of our insights on the effective-interaction model underlying all such outcomes.
