Amazing sound quality!!! This is a custom-made guzheng hand crafted by the Gold Medal Award winner, Mr. Wang Jianchun of the Tianyi Factory. Mr. Wang Jianchun's instruments are a favorite among professional guzheng players for their fullness of sound and versatility.
The sound board is selected from the best grade of air-dried paulownia cut in the quartersawn method. The quartersawn-cut method is known as the best cutting method of sound boards for musical instruments. It provides a more stable and clear sound compared to the flatsawn-cut. The bottom of the sound board is carved with sound grooves to increase volume.
The straight and tight grains of the sound board yield the best concert-level sounds. This instrument sounds full and resonant with strong bass and sweet highs. The middle range is solid and has a clarity that can't be heard in other instruments.
The frame is Madagascar Rosewood with Mica and Silver Thread inlay. The characteristics of Madagascar Rosewood is clear, pure and clean. Normally Madagascar Rosewood provides a little thin sounding due to it's higher density. With spruce backboard, the sound is pure and rich. It's also dynamic with great contrast from high range to low range. Definitely the best!
This model has 1 year warranty from the manufacturer. It comes with a 3-piece matching stands, finger picks, Musedo Guzheng chromatic tuner, and 1-7 spare strings.
This model is hand selected by our professional Yukina at the factory. All the bridges and strings are fine-tuned and adjusted to ensure the best sound quality.
