Almost every stringed instrument consists of at least 1 bridge. It is a medium that connects the vibrations from the strings to the soundboard or the resonating body of the instrument.
A well-matched set of bridges can alter the tone and touch of the guzheng drastically. Guzheng bridges are movable, and have multiple bridges.
The bridges in the guzheng not only transfer the vibrations, but also shape the tone and timbre of the instrument by adding/filtering out various harmonics from the vibration of the strings into the soundboard. A well-fitted set of bridges also will stay firmly in place and not slide around when the player performs big pitch bends, strong accents, and fortessimo(very loud) passages.
A standard guzheng has 21 bridges and needs all the 21 bridges to perform. They are typically made out of hardwoods from the Rosewood family such as African Huali, black Sandalwood, Suan Zhi Rosewood, Aged Rosewood and many more!
