We are proud to introduce the new Sound of China travel size guzheng. This beautiful guzheng is custom-designed by Sound of China Guzheng Music. All the making materials including soundboards, frames, strings and bridges are carefully selected by Sound of China professionals. The top and the bottom sound boards are both made by a professional grade single piece of paulownia that were dried using special Shanghai method that provides the classical sweet tone of the guzheng. The frame is made by blackwood that gives extra fullness and deepness. We put in extra efforts to bring this travel-size comparable to the sound quality of a standard size professional quality guzheng.
It also comes with a built-in Muling electric pick-up system that you can just pluck and amplify.
First, we add the thickness of the soundboard, and redesign the sound chamber to enhance the sound quality and volume. Second, the bridges are designed to fit the travel-size body. Third, the strings are professional quality strings using German music wire. Together, they will keep the guzheng in-tune, and do not go out of tune easily.
Last and the most important, we use extra fine materials. We use premium quality soundboards and blackwood frame to ensure the sound quality of this model is as full and rich as a standard size guzheng. The sound of this guzheng is full, deep and resonant.
And, yes, we want to make it affordable so everyone can enjoy this beautiful instrument. It's excellent quality and craftmanship in a budget price.
It comes with a free set of finger picks and adhesive tape, blackwood bridge set, tuning wrench, 2-piece stands, soft bag and spare 1-7 strings. We provide set-up instruction that's easy to follow. Help on set-up and playing is also offered over the phone or internet free of charge.
