BRINGING THE BEST ERHUS TO YOU
In order to help you sound your best, it is absolutely essential that quality materials are used in the construction of your Erhu. Here at Eight Tones, we only source for the best instruments made from quality-ensured materials.
When an Erhu is played, the entire sound box of the instrument vibrates, producing the unique and instantly recognisable voice of the Erhu. Each type of wood offers a unique character and timbre, feel free to explore what we have and discover which best suits your own signature sound.
SOUND BOARD MEMBRANE
Painstakingly treated, tensioned, and fitted over the soundbox, mounting the membrane onto the Erhu is an art in itself, and one that takes years to master. Eight Tones works with experienced Erhu luthiers Cao Rong and Zhang Lian Jun, who craft only instruments with evenly stretched skins, ensuring each instrument produces a round and balanced tone.
A SENTIMENTAL ATTACHMENT
Good instruments age like fine wine, with a sound that matures with time and use. The Erhu is no exception, and as you develop as a performer, the sound of your Erhu will similarly blossom, becoming an extension of your artistry.
As you embark on your musical journey, we highly recommend that you begin with a quality instrument that will aid you in your progress. Investing in a good instrument will complement your artistic development and growth, allowing you to reach your fullest potential as your sound matures.
The demand for good Erhus is always on the rise, even as supplies of quality materials are depleting. Beyond being an asset to your musical growth, your instrument is sure to be a sound investment that will appreciate over time.
