The Scarlet Bird brand from the Xi'an Conservatory of Music is highly respected for its traditional guzheng-making methods.

This beautiful instrument is made with paulownia wood that has been naturally air-dried for a minimum of six years and framed with rosewood for added sweetness. It is the concert-grade travel-size guzheng from the Scarlet Bird factory, with a length of only 53 inches, offering unrivaled bass compared to other travel-size models.

The body structure of this guzheng is unique, featuring an artificially hollowed-out paulownia body board from Henan Province. This enhances sound quality and requires almost an entire tree to make just one guzheng. The thick Tong tree is used with engraved sound grooves on the back for unobstructed sound waves. The naturally formatted board ensures regular vibration and a clear, bright, magnetic sound. The board's thickness varies to optimize high, middle, and low ranges, providing a harmonious, three-dimensional sound with effective lingering and increased volume.

The sound of this instrument is warm and rich, with robust bass, and is considered by many to be a "grand guzheng".

Size of the Sound box: 20636 cm^3
Sound Wave Level: D^3 string - 86db, D string - 106db
