SOUNDBOARD & STRINGS

Together with the power of Type B Guzheng strings and the finest selected Shanghai Dunhuang’s Grade 1 paulownia wood soundboard, this is a Guzheng to be reckoned with. Carefully air dried in a controlled environment over the course of 25 years, this soundboard is seasoned to perfection to produce the signature Rich, Bright and Vibrant Dunhuang sound that you will want to possess. 

FRAME & BRIDGES

This Guzheng’s Sandalwood frame is tastefully opulent in both appearance and tone produced. From its interplay of violet and ebony streaks, to the full bodied, smooth sound that it produces, this frame has everything that you can possibly want from a Guzheng.

Using only premium selections of aged 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 1 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

Intricately designed, these decorative panels are covered with a tapestry that is elaborate, yet easy on the eye. Titled “Nocturnal Blooming”, it is masterfully inlaid with silver wire, depicting a myriad of peonies blooming under the tranquil moonlight. An acclaimed design that has received much popularity in recent years.

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.
