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!

99% similar to the bridges found on Dunhuang Guzhengs, the bridges are found only on Dunhuang’s high-end models such as the Rose Sandalwood Guzhengs and above.
Possessing a robust bass and focused highs, it brings out the best of the Guzheng sound, and allows the Guzheng to respond with a longer resonance. The resultant effect enables the entire Guzheng to be more responsive, focused, crisp, albeit cutting down slightly on tail end resonance.
These bridges filter out the wolf tones and bring out the best sounds of a Guzheng, amplifying its bass and highs, boasting a richer and warmer tone compared to the other bridges. These bridges are perfect for those who are interested in providing their Guzhengs a boost in the high registers.
