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

This beautiful instrument, featuring Mother-of-Pearl inlay, is made with paulownia wood that has been naturally air-dried for at least 7 years. The design of its body structure is unique. The body board, made from paulownia (pao-tong) wood naturally grown in Henan Province, is hollowed out in the middle to improve 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 varying thickness of the board balances high, middle, and low ranges, ensuring lingering sound and good acoustics. The sound of the "Zhuque" Zheng is rich and three-dimensional.

The sound of this instrument is warm and has a robust bass.

Size of the Sound Box: 20636 cm³
Sound Wave Level: D³ string - 88db, D string - 107.9db
