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.

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.
