Guzheng for Vi An Posted by Hello


Notice the hand planed sound chanels. This is a 3000 year old tradition of ancient guzheng making. The Japanese koto has also adopted this from the Chinese. This instrument is actually not even as heavy as my other guzhengs but produces 5 times the sound!  Posted by Hello
