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!


Crafted from Hei Tan – a dense and hard wood from the Africas. A land with a wealth of resources, these materials proving to be hardy and tough, these bridges are made especially tough. A worthy upgrade, these bridges introduce life back into a Guzheng.


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.


Employing these bridges on your Guzheng creates a bright and powerful sound. However, these bridges may not be suitable for those seeking warmth and richness in their Guzheng. For those seeking for a clean and crisp sound for recordings, these bridges are an absolute delight. As these bridges are used, they also restore life into an otherwise old, muddy and hoarse sounding Guzheng that lacks clarity and projection.
