Harvested from vintage furniture, this class of Aged Rosewood confers upon the Erhu its signature radiant tone.

Sound Box SKIN

The key to a sensitive and good sounding Erhu lies in the resonating skin of the sound box. You will find the skin is stretched to a uniform tension across the sound box  and fitted by hand. When you gently press the skin with your fingers and you will find that it is firm to your touch – this ensures that the membrane will resonate the sound box to its maximum potential so as to give you a full and deep sound.
