This guzheng is made by the well-respected Japanese instrument maker Mitsuya Koto.
Mitsuya Koto is known for their specialty in making bigger size koto. The family has a long
tradition of making big number string zithers. They made the famous 80-string koto for
Michio Miyagi in 1929.
Since 2011, Mitsuya Koto has collaborated with Dunhuang to make the most high-end
guzheng. Currently, Mitsuya Koto has two grades of guzheng available. The concert grade is made using 30-50-year old paulownia soundboard
carved with straight sound grooves and seamless connection to the bottom board. The
collection grade is made using 50-70 year old paulownia soundboard carved with V-shape
sound grooves and seamless connection to the bottom board.
This one is the concert grade that is carved out from a 30 to 40-year-old paulownia tree from the
Aizu region. The tree was air-dried for 5 years. Please take a look at the beautiful grains of
this Aizu paulownia. The carved out body is seamless connected to the bottom board. The
back of the soundboard is hand carved with straight sound grooves witch enhance the volume and makes the sound
spreads out evenly.
The side is decorated with Siamese rosewood frame to give an extra sweetness in the tone.
This guzheng is equipped with Dunhuang professional B strings and concert collection
grade Siamese rosewood bridges. Sound of China professional hand carved each bridge
tip to fit each string.
The sound of this guzheng is crystal clear and delicate. The bass is undoubtfully one of the best in the world. The high is bright and sweet with long ring. The transition is even and solid across the strings, definitely has the best even transition among all guzheng.
This guzheng is hand selected by our professional Yukina. All the
bridges and strings are fine-tuned and adjusted to ensure the best sound quality.
