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, Model #980, is made of paulownia wood that has been naturally air-dried for at least 9 years. The factory has increased the thickness of the soundboard to provide a clearer, more solid, and punchy sound quality.

The body board, made from paulownia (pao-tong) wood that naturally grows in Henan Province, is hollowed out in the middle to improve sound quality. It takes almost an entire tree to make one guzheng. The back is engraved with sound grooves, and there are no struts in the acoustical resonator to ensure unobstructed sound waves. The board's natural radian prevents distortion, producing a clear, bright, 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 with a robust bass.

Size of the Sound Box: 20636 cm³
Sound Wave Level: D³ string - 91db, D string - 109db
