FRAME & BRIDGES

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

Using only premium selections of aged rosewood, the bridges of this Guzheng 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, the backboard is made from the same type of wood as the top soundboard to resonate in a similar fashion so that the sound can be amplified uniformly for that crystal-clear, resonant sound.
