Master Zhang Lian Jun (张连均) has more than 30 years 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. Xin Yue Qin Fang has earned its reputation as being the industry leader through its fine craftsmanship, quality control, tonal excellence.


3rd Grade Aged Rosewood

Having been left to season for a substantial period of time, this Aged Rosewood is of sufficient maturity to produce quality Gaohus. Aside from conferring it a smooth, sweet tone, this Gaohu is also unlikely to warp due to its sturdy construction. This is definitely an instrument that can withstand the rigors of time.

Sound Box Membrane

The key to a sensitive and good sounding Gaohu lies in the resonating membrane of the sound box. You will find the membrane is stretched to a uniform tension across the sound box  and fitted by hand. When you gently press the membrane 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 piercing and powerful sound.
