Upgrade To Wittner Erhu Fine Tuners

Made in Germany - these fine tuners, also known as fine adjusters, are made of nickel plated steel and extremely well crafted. Compared to normal China made fine tuners, these fine tuners are more gentle on the strings, easier to turn and also able to fine tune a greater range.

You can either purchase them in pairs or single. Select single if you only need to attach it onto one single string.

Upgrade to Pirastro Schwarz Rosin

The Black Schwarz, one of the hardest rosin of the Pirastro brand, it is very suitable for hot and humid climates and do not clump up easily. 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

Indian Violet Sandalwood

Not to be confused with the African Sandalwood Erhu, this Indian Violet Sandalwood type of wood that you will find in the Beijing forbidden palace used by royalties. Only grown in India, this wood is extremely precious and is currently endangered, the wood that you see today is harvested from old antique furniture passed down from generations. This Indian Violet Sandalwood Erhu is quite literally “Fit for a king” and the tone is extremely sweet, unlike any other Erhu you have ever seen.

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

  1. Ayden

    Beautiful solid instrument. Plays well, even at high notes. Slight decrease in richness of sound quality at the higher ranges but not unnecessarily sharp or thin.
