It is relatively easy to dust when applied on the bow and it produces a bright sound when played on steel strings. Although this rosin is made for violin, but it is also recommended for Erhu, Zhonghu and Gaohu as well.

WOOD

2nd Grade Aged Rosewood

Just by touch, you will feel that the wood of this Erhu is extremely well aged – the surface of the wood is lightly wax varnished in such a way that you can still feel the tiny pores of the wood. Harvested from vintage furniture, this class of Aged Rosewood confers upon the Erhu its signature radiant tone. This naturally dried Erhu wood will give you a sparkling tone with good resonant Erhu sound signature. Definitely a worthy instrument to add to your collection.

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 is fitted by hand. When you gently press the skin with your fingers, you will find that it is firm to touch. This ensures that the membrane will resonate the sound box to its maximum potential so as to give you a full and deeper sound.
