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!
The Ren Style Suan Zhi bridges are made from a high grade Rosewood, perfect for those who are interested in providing their Guzhengs a boost in the high registers. Originating from the Africas, a land with a wealth of resources, these materials are known to be hardy and tough.
With an inverted triangle bone-tip made of cow bone, it allows the Guzheng to ring with precision, sending vibrations quicker to the bridge. With smaller feet, it creates a good sturdy downweight on the soundboard, holding its position on the soundboard even better.
These bridges are great for Guzhengs whose bridges may tend to slip out of position more, while the design and shape allow for a bright sound and nasal tone. This makes it a great addition to Guzhengs that requires such characteristics.
