ErhuWe sell, lease and repair Guzhengs and Erhus


The erhu sometimes known in the West as the "Chinese violin" or "Chinese two-string fiddle," is a two-stringed bowed musical instrument, used as a solo instrument as well as in small ensembles and large orchestras. 

Erhu is a very famous stringed instrument in China. Its history can be traced back to the Tang dynasty from the 7th to 10th century AD. It was welcomed among the ethnic people of the northeastern part of China. 

The structure is quite simple. There is a slim neck about 80 centimeters, on the surface of which two strings are fixed. In addition, there is a cup-shaped canister and a bow made of horse hair. While performing, the musician is usually seated, with the organ and bow held in the left and right hand respectively. The range consists of three octaves. The tone is close to the human voice. Some people call it the Chinese violin. Because the tone sounds somewhat melancholy, it is good at conveying sad emotions. 

GuzhengThe Zither or Zheng, commonly known as Gu Zheng, is a plucked string instrument that is part of the zither family. It is one of the most ancient Chinese musical instruments according to the documents written in the Qin dynasty (before 206 BC). Zheng is the forerunner of Japanese koto, Korean kayagum, Mongolian yatag, and Vietnamese dan tranh. Due to its long history, the zheng has been called GuZheng or Gu-Zheng where "Gu" stands for "ancient" in Chinese. The GuZheng has been a popular instrument since ancient times and is considered as one of the main chamber as well as solo instruments of Chinese traditional music. Since the mid-19th century, GuZheng solo repertoire has been growing and evolving towards an increasing technical complexity.
