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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Cleaning your Erhu – It is a good practice to clean your Erhu after playing it, this would prevent Rosin build up which could be difficult to remove and in extreme cases, damages the Erhu.

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.
