The N801 "Rosy Agate" model is carved from a selected grade 40-year-old Japanese paulownia tree, air-dried for 5 years. The carved-out body is seamlessly connected to the bottom board. The back of the soundboard features hand-carved straight sound grooves, which ensure even sound distribution. The frame is adorned with Indian Padauk wood, enriching the tone.

This guzheng is equipped with Dunhuang professional B strings and Xuanguang Cambodian Rosewood bridges, delivering a full and rich sound. The bass is exceptionally deep, while the highs are bright and sweet with a long ring. The transitions across the strings are even and solid, providing the best sound quality among guzhengs.

This instrument is selected, fine-tuned, and adjusted by Sound of China professionals to ensure the best sound quality.


Chinese Description:

炫光40年级演奏箏 "玫瑰玛瑙"

40年级别日本桐木

日本桐木长于寒带,生长速度比一般东南亚地区的树木慢,是故日本桐木的年轮会较细密,用于制箏,其声层次分明,朴实圆润,是每一台炫光箏得天独厚的优势。

桐木的木纹更为每一台炫光箏注入灵魂,年轮周而复始地见证树木成长,纹理伴随着树龄变得更为独特,赋予每一台炫光箏独一无二的生命。

选用四十年级别的日本桐木是炫光箏的基本配置。由于寒带桐木生长缓慢,树龄至少具备四十年的桐木,才是成熟用于制箏的时机。

比起市场上一般选用十年左右的木料,在音色上高下立见,由四十年桐木而生的箏音穿透力十足,层层递进,萦绕不去。

琴头

琴头选用印度紫檀,经过工匠反复调整弧度入榫装嵌,升华箏音的传导。

穿弦孔

材质以18K黄金铸造,令玫瑰玛瑙更显贵气及和谐美。

琴头盒内饰

琴头盒内运用了日本箱根传统技艺寄木细工,运用全天然木材拼出几何图形后,再把木头切割成“种板”,再镶嵌到琴头的盒内。寄木细工从江户时代起在箱根地区流传,在1984年更被日本当局升格成指定日本传统木工艺。可惜懂得这技艺的人已越来越少,因此每一种用上寄木细工技艺的作品也越来越珍贵。

琴尾

琴尾选用印度紫檀。

内部结构

炫光箏的直纹结构经过工匠反复测试及调整,坑纹密集细致,比起市面上的一般直纹设计更为讲究,务求令箏音更富立体感。

附赠: A字筝架、古筝专用调音器、软包、指甲及其他配件。此台炫光古筝由Yukina亲自挑选整音,音色完美,欢迎来店试音!
