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 Cao Huali Guzheng bridge has been crafted from a much lighter, less dense Rosewood from the Africas. A land with a wealth of resources, these materials proving to be hardy and tough, these bridges are an instant upgrade to your Guzheng’s sound. These bridges can be found on 694 Series Guzhengs (Dunhuang 694L, 694T) as they are built to be extremely sturdy.
An inverted triangle bone-tip made of cow bone, this tip design sends vibrations in a quick and focused manner into the bridge’s body, and then into the soundboard. The resultant effect enables the entire Guzheng to be more responsive, focused, crisp, albeit cutting down slightly on tail end resonance.
These bridges amplify a Guzheng’s bass and highs. Giving off an vibrant tone colour that is warm, rich and resonant. These bridges are perfect for those who are interested in providing their Guzhengs a boost in the high registers. If you are looking for an upgrade from these bridges, the Cao Huali bridges would be an ideal selection.
