If you are an intermediate player, this Guzheng will be good to have as the tonal quality is very resonant. You can also consider getting the Dunhuang 694KK Guzheng.

If you are a beginner, you might want this Guzheng as it can accompany you throughout your learning phase. If you are looking to start with a more budget friendly Guzheng, you can have a look at the Dunhuang 696D Guzheng.

However, if you are a professional, this Guzheng may not be suitable for you as you may need a sound that is more penetrative and powerful to play more advanced pieces. Then, the Dunhuang 5698JT Guzheng might be more suitable for you.

With a Resonant and Bassy tone colour, you will find that this Guzheng tone colour is easy to control and sounds extremely pleasant to your ears.

It is definitely a worthy companion to accompany you at the learning phase of your music journey.

SOUNDBOARD & STRINGS

Combining both the power of Type B Guzheng strings and the resonance of Shanghai Dunhuang’s Grade 2 paulownia wood soundboard, this is a Guzheng to be reckoned with. Carefully air dried in a controlled environment over the course of 10 years, this soundboard is seasoned to perfection to produce a resonant and bassy sound that you will like. 

FRAME & BRIDGES

Colored a deeply luxurious auburn, this Guzheng frame is diligently crafted from cuts of the Bubinga Wood. A classic design, this exotic wood is especially durable compared to its close counterparts, possessing high density. A worthy Guzheng that will serve you well through your music journey.

Using only premium selections of White rosewood, these bridges are made to the shape of the Dunhuang Guzheng soundboard so that the vibrations from the strings could travel to the soundboard well and thus maximizing the tonal projection of the Guzheng. 

BOTTOM BOARD

Complementing the top soundboard, this Grade 2 paulownia wood backboard is made from the same type of wood as the top soundboard to resonate in the similar fashion so that the sound could be amplified in a uniform manner to bring you the type of sound that is crystal clear and resonant.

DECORATIVE PANEL

Titled “Five Shades of Bliss”, this design features a delicate handmade mother of pearl inlay on the decorative panels. With its contemplative landscape and ample use of white space, this is a true homage to uniquely Chinese aesthetics.

SET-UP

The following accessories will be provided alongside purchase of the Guzheng: a Dunhuang manual, Guzheng tape, acrylic resin nails, a Guzheng soft case, legs, a tuning wrench, as well as 21 Guzheng bridges. The Dunhuang B strings will also be set up on the Guzheng beforehand.

Guzhengs for local orders will be pretuned, with a final check being conducted before we deliver them to you. Due to structural concerns, Guzhengs for overseas shipping will not be set up beforehand, so you can rest assured even if you choose to buy your Guzheng online. Instead, we will enclose a guiding blueprint that demarcates where the bridges should be set up. Fine tuning will be required again after installation of bridges.
