Together with the power of the German Roslau steel core nylon wounded strings specially made by Zhuque, and the finest selected material of  paulownia for its soundboard, this is a Guzheng to be reckoned with. Carefully air-dried in a controlled environment over 9 years, this soundboard is seasoned to perfection to produce the signature Rich, Bright and Vibrant Zhuque sound that you will want to possess.

The top soundboard and the frame of the Guzheng is actually carved out from a single piece of wood (unjointed). The frame is also protected with a layer of opulent dark walnut high gloss finishing (like a piano). The unjointed high quality paulownia wood between the frame and soundboard of the Guzheng gives this Guzheng its signature irresistible  Zhuque tone colour.
