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.

For a start, you might want to get a better bow, the Li Huai Gang Erhu Basic Bow is a popular choice for many musicians. For strings we recommend the Thomastik Erhu Strings or the Fang Fang Red Strings, Thomastik Erhu Strings are slightly pricier but these strings are premium German Roslau Strings with better strings tension. For Rosin, we recommend the Pirastro Oliv-Evah Rosin or the Andrea Solo Rosin.
