Here’s part 2 of our Moving Out Sale! (Click here for part 1 consisting of Liuqins, Ruans and Pipas).

Part 2 consists of mainly used and old erhus. These erhus are either old, with sagging skin, missing baseplates, missing heads or all of the above. The missing head of the erhu breaks easily does not affect the sound of the erhu though.

If you are willing to look beyond the imperfections, they all play and sound pretty well.

We will as usual set them up to make sure they are in a playable condition.

We have recorded a short video clip for some of the erhus.

All prices are in SGD and please email us with the item number to get a shipping quotation (usually around S$70-115) if you are not in Singapore.

Here we go!

His new aged rosewoods erhu sell for at least $1500 when he was alive. Here’s the catch: We are not able to ascertain if this erhu is indeed made by Wang hence the low price tag. The wood and snakeskin on this erhu is pretty good though.
