GUZHENG BRIDGES

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!

MATERIAL

The Suan Zhi Guzheng Bridges have been made from a high grade Rosewood that has been air-dried for 8 to 10 years. This elevates the Guzheng’s tonal qualities, enhancing the already melodious qualities it possesses. Originating from the Africas,  these bridges can be found on 694 Double Alphabet Series Guzhengs (Dunhuang 694KK, 694RR) as they are built to be extremely sturdy.

INVERTED TRIANGLE BONE-TIP

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.

TONAL QUALITIES

The Suan Zhi Rosewood bridges amplifies Guzheng’s bass and highs. Giving off an exuberant tone colour that is warmer, rich and resonant. These bridges are perfect for those who are interested in providing their Guzhengs a boost in the high registers. However, if you are looking for an upgrade, you may consider the Aged Rosewood bridges.
