The Scarlet Bird brand from the Xi'an Conservatory of Music is a highly respected brand that follows traditional guzheng-making methods.

This beautiful instrument is made from paulownia wood that has been naturally air-dried for at least 5 years. The frame and bridges are made of mahogany, contributing to its deep and full sound. The body board is crafted from paulownia wood, naturally grown in Henan Province, and is hollowed out to enhance sound quality. This process uses almost an entire tree for a single guzheng.

The back of the paulownia wood is engraved with sound grooves, and the acoustical resonator is strut-free to ensure unobstructed sound waves. The board's natural radian prevents distortion, resulting in clear, bright, and magnetic sound. The board's thickness varies across different parts to balance high, middle, and low ranges, ensuring lingering sound and increased volume with good acoustics.

The sound of this instrument is warm with a robust bass.

Size of the Sound Box: 20636 cm³
Sound Wave Level: D³ string - 86db, D string - 106db

This model comes with a 1-year warranty from the manufacturer. It includes a 2-piece stand, protective soft case, guzheng chromatic tuner, finger picks, and 1-7 spare strings.
