This concert collection Ziricote wood guzheng is 100% handmade by the well-respected Taiwanese maker Cai Yuanhong.

This 26-string guzheng includes two extra high notes and three extra low notes compared to the traditional 21-string guzheng. It is available in two models: a standard model covering 5 octaves from 1F# to 6F# and a diatonic model covering 4 octaves in the diatonic scale (do, re, mi, fa, so, la, si).

Master Cai's guzhengs have always been highlights of the Shanghai Music Show. His instruments are known for brilliant and sweet high notes, a clean middle range, and a full deep bass. The sound is even and balanced, with long string rings and a perfect balance between hollow and solid tones.

The instrument features a single-piece paulownia soundboard and backboard with a Ziricote wood frame, providing a mellow-sweet tone and pronounced bass notes. Master Cai, with 40 years of experience and a professional guzheng player himself, incorporates several carefully carved tone bars underneath the soundboard to perfect the instrument's sound.

This model comes with a 1-year warranty from the manufacturer. It includes finger picks, a soft case, a guzheng chromatic tuner, and 1-7 spare strings. It is hand-selected by our professional Yukina at the factory, with all bridges and strings fine-tuned to ensure the best sound quality.
