The Scarlet Bird brand of the Xi'an Conservatory of Music is highly respected for its adherence to traditional guzheng-making methods.
This beautiful instrument, Model #11A, is made from paulownia wood that has been naturally air-dried for a minimum of 11 years. The #11A is the latest model from Scarlet Bird, designed to be the perfect overall guzheng. The body has been slimmed down to create a more balanced and even tone. The sound is perfect in every range, with a clean, clear, and solid tone across the strings.
Despite this, it still retains Scarlet Bird's famous warm and deep voice. Compared to the #10 series, the #11A doesn't have as loud and bassy a sound, but the range is more balanced.
Sound Wave Level: D^3 string - 91db
The model comes with a one-year warranty from the manufacturer, and includes a two-piece stand, a Guzheng Chromatic tuner, finger picks, and spare strings 1-7. It is a complete package that allows you to fully enjoy playing the instrument. We also provide easy-to-follow set-up instructions and offer free support over the phone or internet for set-up and playing.
This model was hand-selected by our professional, Yukina, at the factory. All the bridges and strings have been fine-tuned and adjusted to ensure the best possible sound quality.
