WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

erhu review

The quality of the instrument is good, but as a beginner I needed some lessons before I could coax the sound quality from the instrument. The friendly Eight Tone instructor is patient, flexible and I m able to pick up playing some popular songs quickly after 6 months of lessons.

erhu review

The teacher who recommended this erhu to me has been very patient as it was my first purchase and it took me a while to decide. He even played several erhu many times upon request and is certainly very knowledgeable in this instrument. I could also tell that he’s very passionate to share what he knows and is definitely a pleasant experience to buy an instrument from Eight Tones.

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.

WOOD

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.

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.
