If you are a beginner, you might want this Erhu to accompany you through your learning phase. However, if you are looking to start with an Erhu that is slightly more economical, you could consider the Bo Yue African Rosewood Erhu.

If you are an intermediate or a professional player, you may consider getting the Zhang Lian Jun 2nd Grade Aged Rosewood Erhu or the Zhang Lian Jun 1st Grade Aged Rosewood Erhu.

With a Broad and Powerful tone colour, you will find that this African Aged Rosewood Erhu tone colour is even across all the usable registers and easy to control.

A MAKER YOU CAN TRUST

Master Zhang Lian Jun (张连均) has more than 3 decades of industry experience and hails from a family of huqin makers. In his youth, Zhang honed his craft from one of the oldest surviving huqin makers – Master Wan Qi Xing (万其兴) for more than 20 years.

Zhang fervently believes in the old traditional methods of erhu making as he trusts the wisdom of the older generation master luthiers passed down upon him, however, he also believes in constantly fine-tuning the designs for the current generation. Many instruments in the market today sounds marvelous at the start but often dip in quality over a short time, however, Zhang’s instruments are built to last and also sounds good even when new due to the traditional elements he has retained.

Instruments crafted by Zhang Lian Jun are more than just top-quality instruments. They are all unique and masterly crafted works of art. As such, Xin Yue Qin Fang has earned its reputation as being the industry benchmark through its fine craftsmanship, quality control, tonal excellence.

WOOD

African Aged Rosewood

Having been left to season for a substantial period of time, this African Aged Rosewood is of sufficient maturity to produce quality Erhus. Playing this Erhu will give you a clear and powerful tone.  The African Aged Rosewood Erhu will feel sturdy in your hands and is also unlikely to warp. It is definitely an instrument that can withstand the rigors of time.

Sound Box SKIN

The key to a sensitive and good sounding Erhu lies in the resonating  skin of the sound box. You will find the skin is stretched to a uniform tension across the sound box and fitted by hand. When you gently press the skin with your fingers and you will find that it is firm to your touch – this ensures that the membrane will resonate the sound box to its maximum potential so as to give you a full and deep sound.

    I bought it at the school itself after my 1st music lesson.
    The teacher who recommended this erhu to me has been very patient as it was my first purchase and it took me a while to decide. He even played several erhu nany times upon request and is certainly very knowledgeable in this instrument. I could also tell that he’s very passionate to share what he knows and is definitely a pleasant experience to buy an instrument from Eight Tones🤣

    Last November, my wife and I decided to learn to play a Chinese musical instrument. We came across Eight Tones and decided to enrol for lessons with them. Eight Tones staff are very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The quality of the instrument is good, but as a beginner I needed some lessons before I could coax the sound quality from the instrument. The friendly Eight Tone instructor is patient, flexible and I m able to pick up playing some popular songs quickly after 6 months of lessons.

    Aaron is very knowledgeable and willing to share information on the makers of the erhu and wood used. As I bought the erhu after my trial class, I was very fortunate to have my teacher assist me in trying out the various erhus so that I could decide which sound resonates with me.

    这把二胡, 我是2019 买的, 大概 $650价位。 二胡的音色很厚, 亮而不亢。 声音清晰, 柔美。 我买的二胡是物超所值的。
