Sound Characteristics: Sweet, Clean，Balanced, Rich, and Resonant
This beautiful instrument is made with collection grade paulownia soundboards. The top and the bottom of the sound boards are both made by paulownia that were dried using special Shanghai method that provides the famous classical sweet tone of the guzheng. The frame is made by Thailand rosewood (aged rosewood) in plain design with no lacquer to show the beauty of the wood grains.
This is a special model that is made with F-Sound-hole in the back, and two sound windows on the two sides. It is Master Tian Jianzhen's latest innovation on guzheng Unlike the traditional 3 sound holes, the F-sound-holes and sound windows allow the sound to vibrate on the soundboard more and gives a longer ring with smooth projection. Master Tian Jianzhen has been experimenting sound windows and the F-Sound holes since 2006. His previous products can be seen in the Music Show since 2009.
The sound is sweet, clear and resonant. The aged rosewood frame gives a very rich and elegant tone to this guzheng.
