WOOD​

1st Grade Aged Rosewood

Just by touch, you will feel that the wood of this Erhu is extremely old and dense – the surface of the wood is lightly wax varnished in such a way that you can still feel the tiny even layered pores of the wood. Acquired from antique furniture built in the ming and qing dynasty for the Chinese royal families, the wood used to make this Erhu is quite literally “Fit for a king”. The superior quality of Grade 1 Aged Rosewood can be attributed to the optimal conditions the wood was kept in over the 200-300 years of ageing. This naturally dried Erhu wood will give you this beautiful and luscious resonant Erhu sound signature.
