WOOD

African Sandalwood

Often used by other sellers to mislead buyers into believing that it is the more expensive Indian Violet Sandalwood Erhu, the African Sandalwood boasts a beautiful red hue and its dense wood  resonates with a deep and sweet tone. The Indian Violet Sandalwood is much rarer with slightly more purplish orange hue and deeper colored wood grains.

The African Sandalwood tends to turn darker in color over time as the surface oxidizes.

Even the simplest of pieces played by a beginner on the African Sandalwood Erhu will sound emphatic and melodious.

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 is fitted by hand. When you gently press the skin with your fingers, you will find that it is firm to touch. This ensures that the membrane will resonate the sound box to its maximum potential so as to give you a full and deeper sound.

DECORATIVE WINDOW

This traditional Suzhou style decorative window is made from a combination of Rosewood and Boxwood, the material is sturdy yet elastic to provide support to the sound box so that your Erhu will be more durable.

Seasoning an erhu is not by adding pepper and salt till it is well marinated. Instead it refers to the process of breaking-in the instrument till it sounds and plays optimally. When an erhu is new, the skin is taught and firm. By playing on the erhu more frequently, the vibrations from your playing will soften the skin and your erhu will reach its peak performance. This process can take from 3months onwards with at least 15mins of daily playing on the erhu.
