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.

WOOD

Red Sandalwood

Having been left to season for a substantial period of time, this Red Sandalwood is of sufficient maturity to produce quality Erhus. Playing this Erhu will give you a clean and balanced tone.  The Red Sandalwood erhu will feel lighter in your hands  compared to other denser woods, but due to to its drying process is  unlikely to warp. It is definitely an instrument that can will sound good and play well right out of the box.

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.
